Also at the meeting, Council is expected to vote on the following:
- Ordinance 49-21 which would approve $55,000 for D&I Solutions, LLC to conduct a study to assess the city’s level of awareness and organizational practices related to diversity, equity and inclusion. The consultant would also produce recommendations to advise the city on strategies for implementation to decrease inclusion barriers.
- Ordinance 52-21 which would approve $507,000 to repair the seawall along the Maumee River near Promenade Park. The project would address safety concerns related to the riverfront multi-use path which would eventually be incorporated into the planned Metroparks Toledo Downtown Riverwalk.
- Ordinance 53-21 which would approve $23,250 for the city’s share for design services for planned streetscape enhancements along Front Street between Main Street and the Craig Memorial Bridge. The ordinance would also authorize an agreement with Metroparks Toledo which would match the city’s contribution needed to cover the remaining 50 percent of project costs. Improvements would include traffic calming, crosswalks, planters, trees, and other amenities to compliment the Glass City Metropark.
