ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The Englewood City Council met on Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m. to discuss implementing a Arc Flash Hazard Analysis Study to determine the location and severity of arc flash hazards and suggest appropriate courses of action to minimize them.

The bill was approved 7-0 by Council members in the amount of $53,528.  The Council contract awarded the study to Florida-based Emerson Network Power – Electric Reliability Services.

CURSHING PARK LIGHTING

“The free electricity in Curshing Park is an expense to the taxpayers as well as attracting other elements,” said Elaine Hults, who addressed Council on variety of concerns. Hults thanked the Council for the fast response to fixing the light on Lincoln Street. She asked if a motel was ever considered instead of the upscale apartments. In addition, she questioned why money was being spent for fire station locations instead of building improvements at the current location.

The second ordinance was voted 6-1 for Allen Water Filtration Plant residual removal, and a disposal to Secure on Site Services USA in the amount of $232,846.75 for disposal of 1000 cubic yard of production.

    I like your story but a little heavy on all the ordinances. Maybe just focus on the main ones rather than brining up all of them.
