1.  Wal-Mart Expansion

2. Inter-Municipal Bike Infrastructure MOU
Decision Required: None.

CM Eldridge has added this item and will address.

3. Tremont Avenue Speed Hump Request
Decision Required: Whether to approve.
The Staff installed the speed/volume counter upon receipt of the request.  Attached are the results.  Based on this information, staff does not think a speed hump is warranted.

4. Valley Way Speed Hump Repairs – Raised Crosswalks
Decision Required: Whether to repair or replace.

The Staff were directed to look at the possibility of installing raised crosswalks on the ebd if the blocks where the current speed hump in need of repair exists.  The Director of Public Works has provided technical data regarding this matter in order to properly make a determination.  If the Mayor and Council wish to remove the speed hump and install “bookend” raised crosswalks, then this can be accomplished in the spring.

5. Cheverly Avenue and Montrose Road Design
Decision Required: Whether to consider hiring a traffic engineer.

The Mayor and Town Council directed the Public Works Director to obtain a price for a traffic engineer to look at the proposed changes to this intersection.  The cost for engineering for this item is approximately $20,000.  The cost of construction will have to be determined after the engineering is completed.

6. Street Light Request - Joslyn
Decision Required: Whether to authorize a streetlight installation.

Councilmember Daly requested this item.  The Director of Public Works has been out at night and concurs that a light is need on the requested pole.  There is a gap between lights on Joslyn and lighting on 63rd creating a dead zone.  A motion will be needed to direct staff to place an order with Pepco.

7. O-1-16 Amending the Housing Code
Decision Required: Whether to introduce.
The Code Enforcement Officer was confronted with a landlord – tenant issue during the recent cold snap.  When referring to the Code as to the requirements for providing heat, the Code was not what was expected.  The attached change to the Town Code will hopefully remove any ambiguity.

8. FY16 Town Audit

The FY16 Audit was distributed in early December.  All questions provided have been answered.
