According to the bid specifications, the rehabilitation will involve nearly a mile of the Spring River Trail between Virginia and Atkinson avenues, near 11th Street on the west end and Loveless Park on the east.

The work will consist of patching and repairing, fixing tree root damage, removing and replacing some sections of the trail, resetting fencing and installing several solar-powered lights.

The work is scheduled to begin in March.

Also on the agenda is recommending professional design services to meet new requirements for minimum dissolved oxygen concentration effluent for the wastewater treatment plant. HDR Engineering, Albuquerque, has submitted a proposal for the design services for $102,481.

The committee will also consider recommending a request for proposals to create a pool of contractors to perform water main services for the city and approval of annual certifications and commitments required by the 2018 Community Development Block Grant funding the renovation of the Poe Corn Center, 201 S. Garden Ave.
