PRESIDENT‘S MESSAGE How did we get here and where do we go from here? Brian R. Usher, PWLF APWA President

H

ave you ever found yourself driving and wondered how you arrived at a particular location? More importantly did you ask yourself, “Where do I go from here?” If so, you are not alone. These are two very similar questions that public works officials across the nation as well as other countries are asking as well.

Is the answer to the question of how did we get here becoming clearer? If not, it should be. New infrastructure is constructed every single day with no long-term plan focused on maintaining the asset over the next 30 years. This same scenario is occurring across our nation every single day with all aspects of infrastructure.

Let’s start with the first question, “How did we get here?” Citizens get excited to see new infrastructure being constructed within their communities. Politicians like to reflect back over their term(s) in office and point out the new facility, the community pool or brand new neighborhood park that was constructed while in office. New things create excitement, as they should. Take, for instance, a new residential development is being planned for the northern portion of a city that doesn’t have a public park. Not a problem. The developer has agreed to construct a small park and give it to the City as part of the overall development plan. It’s a win-win situation in the eyes of many. With all the excitement over this new neighborhood amenity, nobody stops and asks the question of how the City will maintain this public space moving forward. Some might think that it’s such a small space, the existing staff can handle the upkeep and tend to any maintenance needs/costs. Others will say the park is new and there won’t be any maintenance costs for years down the road. A similar mindset is taken with the construction of a new facility planned to house several departments.

The next question then tends to be, “Where do we go from here?” This question is the more difficult of the two to answer. It’s no secret that every town, city, county, and state across North America is facing the same issue. There is not sufficient funding to repair/replace the amount of failing infrastructure. Organizations have to take a multi-pronged approach to get on the right path. First and foremost, when new infrastructure is constructed and brought online, a long-term maintenance plan with identified funding for maintenance should be developed in conjunction with the construction of the infrastructure. Obviously this will not correct the lack of funding for existing infrastructure, but it will certainly prevent the problem from worsening in the years to come. What’s the point in having new infrastructure if you can’t afford to maintain it once constructed?

of their communities the current state of their infrastructure and the amount of funding required for maintaining it. This task is impossible to complete without the detailed knowledge of your assets. Public works departments are competing with fire and police for funding needs year in and year out. With each tragic incident that takes place, this becomes increasingly more difficult as more attention is given to public safety. We as public works officials have to become better at telling our story to get the attention of the decision makers. The

funding is required to maintain the infrastructure? The answer is, you don’t if you don’t have this information. APWA appointed members to an Asset Management Task Force that will be looking to develop steps for organizations to take in getting started with asset management. Some individuals or organizations may feel that they can’t afford to take on the task of asset management, yet in reality they can’t afford not to. Public works officials have to effectively communicate to the governing bodies

challenge that we have is identifying a sustainable funding source to make the necessary improvements. There is no magic wand to waive to solve this problem. It is going to take collaboration and willingness of us all to step outside the box we tend to place ourselves in and think creatively to move our organizations and communities forward. Will it be easy? No, it will not. However, I’m confident that the hard-working and dedicated professionals of this association can collectively work together to get us back on the right path.

WASHINGTON INSIGHT National Flood Insurance Program Reauthorization Tracy Okoroike Government Affairs Associate American Public Works Association Washington, D.C.

W

The next

authorization of NFIP will influence how public works professionals can best mitigate flood disasters and access federal resources to help communities

recover.

hen Congress passed the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was established. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for administering the program. NFIP provides flood insurance to policy holders throughout the country. Property owners can purchase flood insurance through the NFIP, but only if their communities participate in the program. In order for communities to be eligible for the NFIP, they must agree to federally mandated floodplain management ordinances to mitigate flood risks. FEMA uses a flood mapping program called the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning or RISK MAP to set insurance rates and mitigation requirements. FEMA uses data from historical floods, river flow, existing flood mitigation structures, rainfall, and topographical surveys to assess flood risk and then shares this data with participating communities. NFIP has been reformed and reauthorized several times since 1968 to provide communities with better flood protection and to ensure the program remains financially viable. The latest authorization of NFIP, the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012, will expire on September 30, 2017, and Congress is beginning to explore options for reauthorization and reform. Congress has recently held hearings to address the future of NFIP. One sticking

point in NFIP reauthorization will be special flood hazard areas designated in flood maps. Special flood hazard areas are defined as an area of land that would be inundated by a flood having a one percent chance of occurring in any given year. This is also known as a 100year flood. Some communities have disputed the designation saying that some special flood hazard areas don’t take into account all flood mitigation structures in order to accurately reflect insurance rates. Another issue is the growing role of private insurance companies in providing flood insurance and their ability to shift some of the burden of post-flood disaster recovery away from the federal government. Public works professionals play an important role in disaster mitigation and recovery. In many communities, public works departments serve as the link between FEMA and local homeowners, providing them with flood zone determination information. After disasters, public works professionals are responsible for restoring access to roads, bridges, and water supply. The next authorization of NFIP will influence how public works professionals can best mitigate flood disasters and access federal resources to help communities recover. APWA will continue to monitor developments on NFIP and make certain APWA membership is fully informed. Tracy Okoroike can be reached at (202) 218-6702 or tokoroike@apwa.net.

TECHNICAL COMMITTEE NEWS APWA committees gather to “connect for action” Phyllis Muder Professional Development Program Manager American Public Works Association Kansas City, Missouri

M

ore than 250 APWA leaders converged in an unusually warm Kansas City in the middle of February to meet, network and collaborate on how to move APWA forward in 2016. Nine Technical Committees are tasked with keeping a pulse on the facets of the public works industry. These include Facilities and Grounds, Solid Waste Management, Transportation, Fleet Services, Water Resources Management, Engineering and Technology, Utilities and Public Right-of-Way, Emergency Management, and Leadership and Management. All nine Technical Committees held their business meetings on either Wednesday, February 17 or Friday, February 19. Since “Connecting for Action” was the theme of this year’s combined Spring Technical Committee meeting, many of APWA’s standing committees met with the groups. The Government Affairs liaison, Andrea Eales, and Chairperson Lisa Rapp worked with each committee on their profession’s position statements and the advocacy options available for their chapters. If you are interested in the APWA position statements, please refer to the Policy section of the Government Affairs page on the APWA Website: http://www.apwa.net/be_involved/ Issues-and-Policies. The Center for Sustainability met with the Technical Committees and highlighted their new brand and webpages. Last year, the Center worked with each of the Technical Committees to compile a document titled “Sustainable Practices in Public

Works.” This is also available on the APWA website under the Center for Sustainability tab: http://www.apwa. net/DR/index.asp?ID=4640. Small Cities/Rural Communities also met with the committees and continued their commitment to having a representative for each of the committees. Many of the key issues that the committees address hit the small agencies the hardest. The work to continue to support these smaller entities is critical to the success of public works across the continent. The Professional Development Committee, which is charged with oversight of all educational offerings at APWA, also met during the week. Discussions centered on the DCS credentialing options, the ways chapters can increase participation and develop Institutes, and on other training needs for APWA members. Tying the work of the Technical Committees together with the work of the chapters was a key initiative for the combined spring meeting. The Council of Chapters meetings were held concurrently with the Technical Committees to capitalize on opportunities for the chapter leadership and committee leadership to interact. The groups were pulled together for a presentation on the new APWA Connect/infoNOW functionality and to brainstorm as a group on how to “Change the Conversation about Public Works.” Most networking, however, was done at the dinner event at the Gallery over barbeque and a trivia contest.

Speak words that empower you A common sense attitude adjustment strategy Steve Rizzo Author, Get Your SHIFT Together Keynote Speaker, Closing General Session 2016 APWA North American Snow Conference Editor’s Note: Steve Rizzo is the Closing General Session Keynote Speaker at APWA’s North American Snow Conference in Hartford, Connecticut. His presentation is entitled “Get Your SHIFT Together” and takes place on Tuesday, May 24, at 3:30 p.m. For more information on the upcoming Snow Conference, see pages 8-9 or visit www.apwa.net/snow.

A

s an Attitude Adjuster by profession, I am often asked, “What is the most valuable lesson you learned about success and happiness?” Without hesitation, my response is always, “Never use your words to describe a challenging situation. Rather, use your words to change your perspective on a challenging situation.”

whomever will stand still long enough to regret doing so about how you can’t get a fair shake, you will always feel miserable. Ever hear anyone say, “Misery loves company?” Being miserable doesn’t exactly attract good things to you. Get it? If you want to change your life for the better, start by consciously changing what you think—and what you say.

We need to be especially careful about the words we speak out loud when things aren’t going the way we want. Yes, it’s true that what you think is what you get, but what you say out loud in the midst of troubling times has even a greater impact. Although it may be possible to convince yourself that you’re trying to stay positive when the situation calls for some good oldfashioned angst, but what you say out loud during those times could very well make the difference in how long you remain in that situation and how deeply you are affected.

Awareness is the first step in stifling this voice and turning a compulsively negative mindset around. Once you recognize the dismal reality these thoughts and words are creating for yourself, you can step back, observe the direction you are going in, and take action against them. You do this by counterattacking with empowering thoughts and words that will instill hope, faith, confidence, courage and determination.

The words you speak amplify your feelings and trigger mental images, which in turn will lead to the actions that you take; and the actions that you take will lead to the outcome. In other words, my friend—if what you think is what you get, then what you say is what you ask for.

“Hey, I know you’re there and I know what you’re trying to do. But it won’t work! Because I’m in control here! I get

to choose what thoughts flow through my mind! I get to choose the words that are coming out of my mouth! But most of all, I have a force (God, or whatever you choose to believe) that is bigger than anything you can throw at me! So go ahead! Hit me with your best shot! One thing is certain: I will prevail!” Whether coming from a positive or negative place, your words inevitably affect your attitude, and thus your situation. Always remember, the moment you open your mouth to say something you start the process of creation in motion. The choice is yours, my friend.

We will have a new Executive Director; we will experience the first “PWX”; we will install our first second-generation President, Ron Calkins (Ron’s father, Myron, was APWA President in 1970); and finally, by the end of February, APWA will have moved to a new headquarters location in downtown Kansas City. This is probably a good time to look back at the storied history of the various headquarters locations since the association was originally formed. The following article has been compiled primarily from previously published historical documents and will attempt to summarize the history of APWA through its various “homes.” A significant portion of this article will concentrate on the formative years of APWA and the background of the origins of the Merriam Center in Chicago, the first true home of APWA.

The Early Years As many members know, the predecessor organizations to APWA started back in the 1890s. This originated with the formation of ASMI (the American Society for Municipal Improvements), the very first organization for municipal public works officials. The impetus behind the formation of ASMI was the impact of the “White City” at the World’s Columbian Exposition held in Chicago in 1893. Millions of people from around the world visited to see what a modern city could be. The 12

“White City” had the most modern public infrastructure of any city in the world. The Columbian Exposition also hosted the International Congress of Municipal Engineers to widely share the technical information learned from the Exposition. This single meeting directly led to the formation of ASMI, the first direct predecessor to APWA.1 The first meeting of ASMI was held on September 18, 1894 in Buffalo, New York. Staffing for ASMI was mostly on a volunteer basis but with no real place to call “home.” Also, in 1894 representatives from business, government and various professional organizations gathered in Philadelphia for the first annual Conference for Good Government. As a result of this meeting, the National Municipal League was formed.2 From these roots, between 1894 and 1920, virtually all major cities in the U.S. built extensive systems of sewers, paved streets, water supplies, gas, electric and other utilities.

The Formative Years By 1930 ASMI had changed its name to the American Society of Municipal Engineering (ASME). At this time they hired a part-time Secretary who also served the Engineers Club of St. Louis. I guess you could call this the first home of our organization. In 1935 ASME asked Donald C. Stone to become its Executive Director.3 In 1919 another organization was formed: the International Association www.apwa.net

of Street and Sanitation Officials. In 1925, the name was changed to the International Association of Public Works Officials (IAPWO) which was headquartered in Chicago. IAPWO was heavily supported by Elgin Sweeper Company and the City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation. By the mid-1930s it became increasingly evident to public works engineers and administrators that the design, construction, operation, maintenance and management of public works were inseparable.4 At the behest of Donald C. Stone (for whom APWA’s Donald C. Stone Center is named), who at the time was serving as the Executive Director of the Public Administration Service (PAS), in 1935, ASME and IAPWO agreed to establish a joint secretariat and requested that Stone act as its organizing Executive Director. He agreed to contribute his services on the condition that the two organizations agree to formally merge. This merger occurred in 1937 when they joined forces to become the American Public Works Association (APWA).5 The very first full-time APWA Executive Director was Frank Herring. Beginning with Donald C. Stone, in the early days a critical person to the growth and success of APWA was a lady named Olga Vydra who served as office manager and all around go-to person. She ultimately served the first three Executives (four, if you count Stone). In 1946, Donald Herrick was named as the new Executive and served until


1958. Robert D. Bugher was hired as Mr. Herrick’s assistant in 1953 and became APWA’s third Executive Director in 1958—a position held for 31 years, until his retirement in 1989.

1313 Enter Charles E. Merriam,6 a distinguished professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago, and Louis Brownlow,7 a veteran author, political scientist and consultant in the area of public administration. Together, they conceived the idea that there should be a building specifically dedicated to public administration at the local level somewhere away from the political influences of Washington, D.C. They along with several others secured a $1 million grant from the Spelman Fund specifically to construct a new building dedicated to public administration on the campus of the

University of Chicago. This building was located at 1313 E. 60th Street. For the first decade, APWA was also funded by a grant from the Spelman Fund to support staff salaries and general administration.8 Thus, 1313 became the first “real” home of APWA (see photos on page 16). The new building was named the “Public Administration Building” and later, in 1979 the building was renamed in honor of Merriam, becoming the Charles E. Merriam Center.9 However, most people simply referred to the building as “1313.” In addition to APWA, the building was home to many public administration organizations: the International City Management Association; the American Planning Association; the Council of State Governments; the Municipal Finance Officers Association; the Government www.apwa.net

Welfare Association; the National Association of Housing Officials; the Public Administration Clearing House; the Public Administration Service and a Joint Reference Library— virtually a “one-stop shop” for local government services.5 Merriam and his colleagues explicitly wanted the building to serve as headquarters of so many organizations so as to be closer to local government and to extricate the organization from the political influences of Washington, D.C. In a very unusual move, even for the times, all of these organizations were provided their facilities rent free. Over the years, an entire generation of public works and local administrators looked to “1313” for information, guidance and leadership.10

By the late 1980s the Merriam Center, despite an addition to the facilities, was outgrown and was in dire need of many updates and renovations. By this time most of the other organizations had relocated to other cities, mostly to Washington, D.C. The University badly wanted to repurpose 1313, which would require at least a temporary relocation of the APWA offices. Later following the rehabilitation and repurposing of the 1313 facility, it became known as Chapin Hall;11 however, it is still serving the public need.

upgrade the facilities to meet historic preservation, structural, building code, parking and ADA requirements proved to be costly beyond the available resources, despite a valiant effort to garner support from the various APWA chapters. Despite the promise of a large grant from the State of Missouri to help with the move, the grant never materialized. The acquisition of Thayer Place along with the failure of the grant to materialize and the cost of the move created a severe financial situation for APWA.

Relocating to Kansas City By this time Bob Bugher had retired and Richard Sullivan, who had been the head of the APWA Research Foundation, was named Executive Director. As a result of the University’s desire to rehabilitate the building, in the early 1990s, Sullivan and the Board of Directors decided to conduct a nationwide study to possibly relocate the APWA offices. After considering a number of possible sites, at the conclusion of the study, in a somewhat controversial decision, the Board voted to relocate the APWA headquarters to Kansas City, Missouri. This decision was made during a period of economic recession.12 A building of sufficient size and location was found at 800-820 Broadway in Kansas City. The building was known as “Thayer Place,” a historic Kansas City building that was constructed between 1883 and 1890 (see photo on page 16). APWA purchased the building(s) (actually three separate structures) with intentions to upgrade and remodel to serve the needs of the association for the foreseeable future. The building had been vacant for six years. Ultimately, the decision to purchase this building proved unwise as further inspection and evaluation to 14

Until a permanent solution could be found, the first office space APWA leased was located in the business district at 106 West 11th Street (see photo on page 16). The building is currently called the Mark Twain Tower, a 22-story building built in 1915. The move occurred around February of 1992. After a couple of years, poor parking and cramped spaces, along with building a new staff and limited resources forced the association to look for more suitable office space. Upon Sullivan’s retirement in 1993, APWA hired William Bertera as the next Executive Director. Bertera was faced with overwhelming organizational problems as well as dire financial conditions. APWA was near bankruptcy. Bertera set about building a virtually new staff and a complete reorganization of the APWA management and administrative structure. The Board of Directors determined that he could be housed in the Washington, D.C offices in order to establish a closer relationship with the political structure and hopefully secure funding assistance. The Kansas City day-to-day operations office was led by Kaye Sullivan.

2345 Grand Boulevard Once the initial financial crisis was addressed (somewhere around 1995), the association relocated to the most recent location, 2345 Grand Boulevard in the heart of the Crown Center district (nationally known as the headquarters of Hallmark greeting cards) near Union Station (see photo on page 17). The building, originally known as the IBM Plaza, is a skyscraper that was designed by worldrenowned architect Mies van der Rohe, and opened in 1977.13 Eventually, Thayer Place was sold and APWA was in a stable financial condition and location for the next 20 years or so. Actually, APWA occupied two different spaces within the building on Grand Boulevard, first on the fifth floor, and then on the seventh floor. In 1999, Bertera moved on to explore another opportunity and was replaced by Peter King, APWA’s sixth Executive Director. King continued to keep the Washington office as his primary location, with Kaye Sullivan handling the day-to-day operation in Kansas City. In mid-2015, King resigned to take another position. At nearly the same time, a decision was made to again relocate the Kansas City offices. The new offices are located at One Kansas City Place, 1200 Main Street.14

One Kansas City Place One Kansas City Place, at 42 stories, is the tallest building in Missouri, the most recognizable structure in Kansas City and is located in downtown Kansas City (see photo on page 17). It was originally intended to be a part of a much larger development; however, this project was never completed. The building was completed in 1988. This will be APWA’s “home” for at least the next 10 years. Over the years, APWA has also maintained offices in Washington,

Knock knock…Who’s there? AbdulRasak Yahaya Staff Engineer City of Gardner, Kansas Chair, APWA Diversity Committee

K

Life before cell phones and texting: the author in 1988

nock knock. Who’s there? Poor communication. Poor communication who? Please deposit 25 cents to continue your call. Now if you have never used a pay phone you might not get this joke or better yet it was just a bad joke. However, when it comes to diversity, communication is an extremely important tool and should never be taken as a joke in any company or organization. I want to address three common forms of communication: “non-verbal,” “verbal,” and “written” communication. On any given day we will use each one of these forms of communication to express our perspective with our family, friends and coworkers. It is so important to realize that our diversity among ourselves can easily influence how effective our communication is

perceived with a wide demographic of people. The great potential and strength that our companies and organizations have gained through diversity can only be reached if we are united in our communication efforts. The word “united” in no way means the same because that would defeat the point in developing a diverse workforce. I want you to think of “united” as the collective effort to communicate. As I mentioned earlier there are three forms of communication: “non-verbal” which makes up 55% of our communication; “verbal” which makes up 38%; and “written” which makes up 7%. This percentage evaluation can be credited to famous researcher Albert Mehrabain and his studies in 1967. The reason I bring up this statistic is that our forms of communication have evolved, yet the way we perceive and receive has changed very little. Written communication through e-mail can widely be agreed upon as our current popular choice of communication. With that being said, we are doing a majority of our communication through the smallest percentage of how best we receive communication. Writing style is heavily influenced by an individual’s diversity and background. Certain words and expressions are only used by select groups. If you fall into the culture of government as I do, you may find yourself using acronyms for every other word when writing an

e-mail. I will share with you a secret: I find myself doing a Google search to decode certain acronyms. Also, have you ever received that e-mail written in all CAPS and can’t help but wonder if the person on the other end is yelling at you? E-mail is a great form of providing vital information and must be used in a way that is inclusive to a diverse group. “The two words: information and communication are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through.” – Sydney J. Harris. I would recommend that everyone recognizes their own writing style and that anytime you are sending an e-mail to a group of recipients that you consider the diversity and be conscious of being inclusive. Verbal communication or better known as the “Phone Call” in many situations is another form in which diversity contributes a great deal. Public works has long had two distinct groups of workers which can be simply categorized as the “office workers” and the “field workers.” These two groups, among the many other collective and diverse subsets within them, rely on good verbal communication. One of the key barriers as well as champions of verbal communication is a person’s tone. When you hear or see the word “diversity” the first idea of vocal tone I bet rarely comes to mind. A person’s tone or how comfortable an individual feels changing their pitch in

a conversation most likely is influenced by their current and past environment and experiences. Most of the time a change in an individual’s tone is triggered by an emotional response (e.g., frustration or excitement) which leads to barriers. I recommend in order to champion a good verbal conversation that you practice changing your tone from a mental recognition of the environment and situation. It may seem like you are performing the same exact action but when practicing thoughtful pitch and tone variations you will be able to communicate once again with a wider range of groups and coworkers. Think about a weekly staff meeting, scheduled conference meeting, and the emergency response gathering. Have you ever wondered why when a really important decision or solution is needed, we all come together? One of the many great things about our differences and diversity is that our similarities and common interests are what bring us together even if we appear different. Non-verbal communication makes up 55% of our communication for a reason. Everyone wants to feel confident that their message was included in the decisionmaking process and helped stimulate a proactive and productive result. The only way to achieve that feeling of confidence is to witness others’ nonverbal communication through “body language.” I will share this story. I was part of a conference meeting a while

back with out-of-town guests from the Northeast region and our meeting was hosted in the Midwest of the country. The meeting was hosted in the springtime and about halfway through our meeting the emergency tornado sirens activated. All of the local meeting members, including myself, just continued meeting. As I looked up at our guests I could see the worry and early signs of fear through their body language. I could only imagine what they were thinking: Why are we sitting in the middle of “Tornado Alley” with sirens going off and no one is taking shelter? I quickly spoke up and told them that the tornado sirens are tested the first Wednesday of every month and that day was the first Wednesday. It takes awareness to survive a tornado even if that tornado is in the minds of others. Having good communication skills, which are enriched with training and understanding for the need of diversity and inclusion, serves as best practices in almost every environment.

Recognize Your Leaders Candidate’s Name: Dan Dawson Candidate’s Title: Principal Transportation Planner Candidate’s Agency/Organization: Marin County Department of Public Works Candidate’s City/State: San Rafael, California

H

ow long has the candidate been involved in the public works industry?

Dan joined Public Works from the County’s Community Development Agency in May 2006.

How long has the candidate worked in their current position? Dan has been the County nonmotorized advocated since joining Public Works as a Senior Planner in 2006 and over time was promoted to a Principal Transportation Planner.

Please describe the reason that the candidate is being considered for recognition. Dan is a leader who by his influence has helped change Marin County into a more bicycle-friendly place. Dan has worked on developing programs to connect communities and people

with non-motorized transportation. From outreach at schools, the County Fair and the annual Oktoberfest event Dan has made a difference impacting the culture by leading the charge to embrace walking and his passion, bicycling. Dan has overseen a number of Bicycle Riding & Share the Road education workshops. He has set up seminars for engineers to learn the latest on bicycle and pedestrian design standards. Dan has taken the intent of making Marin County bicycle friendly and has worked with the various towns and cities in Marin County along with large public involvement to recreate bicycle master plans to move forward with infrastructure improvements and shape the thinking that bicycles are as important as cars.

How was the candidate’s leadership ideas/actions brought to the forefront? Dan was given a task to improve nonmotorized transportation in Marin County. With this task Dan developed many ideas and goals, but the key point with Dan is that no matter how things changed, shifted, or failed he was able to evaluate with a period of introspection to maintain the intent and values of what was asked by the Board of Supervisors. The ideas and goals were just guideposts for Dan who is able to adapt, progress and succeed.

Who did the candidate work with to help bring this idea/action forward? Dan worked with the Marin County Board of Supervisors, Department of Dan Dawson

Public Works Management, and the management from the various towns and cities in Marin County, to improve bicycle and pedestrian usage.

Did the candidate experience any challenges when trying to implement this? Dan looks at problems as opportunities, and from working to change a car-focused culture Dan was faced with a lot of opportunities. The good news is that Dan decided to measure the result with before and after counts to see if program and nonmotorized infrastructure improvement would increase bicycle and pedestrian use. (Count details are at http://www. walkbikemarin.org/.) The counts showed that they did so Dan could smile with a backward look at all the setbacks and negative voices.

Are there steps/processes that, when looking back, the candidate could have done differently to make this idea/action even more successful (lessons learned)? Looking back Dan would say we have only just begun. The intent to improve non-motorized transportation in Marin County is happening and the next step for Dan, who leads by influencing people, is the next person he can have a conversation with on how great it is to ride a bike.

OPEN YOUR WINTER TOOLBOX Levels of service Wilfrid Nixon, Ph.D., P.E., PWLF Vice President, Science and the Environment Salt Institute, Alexandria, Virginia Member, APWA Winter Maintenance Subcommittee

E

ven in these days of GPS, Google Maps, and who knows what else designed to get us to our destination, it remains true that “if you don’t know where you are going, you will end up somewhere else.” This is true not only in map reading, but also in winter maintenance. If we are to make the best use of our winter maintenance toolbox, we need a clear idea of where we are trying to get to. The classic answer to “where am I trying to get to” in winter maintenance is “I want to achieve my levels of service goals.” Or at least, it should be! Which raises the very pertinent question—what are levels of service goals? Along with other questions such as, who sets them? What is the right goal (or set of goals) for my agency? What are the implications of changing my levels of service goals? And even, what happens if I regularly exceed my levels of service goals? Let’s take a look at those questions and a few others. First of all, what do we mean by levels of service? This has changed a bit over the years. A couple of decades ago, it was not uncommon for agencies to have levels of service goals that said things like, “We will plow these roads once every two hours.” That is a goal that focuses on what the agency will do, rather than what the agency will achieve—on an input rather than an outcome if you will. Today, levels of service are more typically expressed in terms of the road 24

condition at some time after the end of a storm—things like “four hours after the end of the storm, roads will have bare wheeltracks.” Many agencies are also using photographs in their winter maintenance planning documents to show what they mean by their levels of service terms—defining by pictures what “bare wheeltracks” are, for example. If you go to the APWA Winter Maintenance Subcommittee website (https://www.apwa.net/ technical_committees/TransportationCommittee/Subcommittees/WinterMaintenance) you can download an example of a winter maintenance planning document and see such pictures for yourself. In addition to defining levels of service in terms of outcomes, rather than inputs, levels of service are typically different for different priorities of roads. Most agencies seem to define three or four levels of road priority (although Figure 1 on page 26 shows a sign from Larimer County, Colo., which at the time I took the photo had six road priorities defined). You might note in Figure 1 that the last road level (Level 6) is for roads that are not plowed or maintained during the winter season—it is a sort of “abandon hope all ye who drive on here” road level designation! What makes a road a high priority? Well, arterial roads and emergency routes are typically the highest priority, then collectors, and finally www.apwa.net

residential streets, although some agencies will adjust those levels to take into account hills and curves (which might raise the priority of a road). Clearly, the higher the priority of a road, the sooner the agency will attend to it, but the priority may also impact the desirable end state of the road. In the Larimer County example in Figure 1, the desired end state for Level 6 roads (we will not do anything) was clearly different from the end state for Level 1 roads. So, if not all of your roads need to have the same end state, how should they look when you are done with them? This is where we begin to answer the “who sets the levels of service?” question. For example, Figure 2 on page 26 shows a collector street at an intersection after a snowstorm, and clearly there is some snow on the road. Equally clearly, this street is okay to drive on. But, if the snow is not cleared away, then when (and if) temperatures drop, the road could well become icy. So, who gets to decide if this is good enough, and how do they do it? Ideally, the elected body in charge of a given agency should make this decision, with the guidance of the agency staff. That last phrase is rather important! Obviously, if your elected body members want all your streets to be as clean as an interstate after the storm (see Figure 3 on page 26) then it will cost them quite a bit!


The other side of the balance is that while it will be acceptable, perhaps, to have some snow on residential streets (see Figure 4 on page 27), if all your streets (arterials – Figure 5 on page 27, and Collectors – Figure 6 on page 27) look like Figure 4, there may be a few complaints from the citizens! Or perhaps not—not every community is the same, and so not every community should have the same levels of service. But there is a clear linkage between cost and levels of service, and it is important that our community (and primarily our elected community leaders) understand that linkage—the more streets you have looking like Figure 3, the more it will cost you! Two other factors come into play if you are thinking about redefining your levels of service. First, how do you currently compare with neighboring agencies, and if you change your levels of service, how will you compare then? If you want to reduce complaints, it is always good to make sure you provide the best levels of service among the surrounding communities. Not that you would ever answer a citizen who is calling to comment on winter maintenance that they should be happy to live where they do, because the winter maintenance is so much worse in the next door community— but you could! Much better to be the angel than the goat! And, if you are thinking about a major realignment of your levels of service, always think about where you are right now. What are your current goals (if they are specified somewhere)? What levels of service have you been providing, regardless of your current goals? What burdens would a new set of service goals place on your agency,

and could you handle those new burdens?

cost more and nobody should be (too) surprised.

So, the levels of service goals should be set by elected officials, but in practice what this means is that the elected officials approve (one hopes!) a winter maintenance plan at a board meeting, and the plan includes the levels of service. Which raises another issue about winter maintenance plans, and how to prepare them, but the good news is there is lots of help available on that topic, including even a website that will (with appropriate input) put together a plan for you (the link is on our subcommittee web page).

And the final question was “what happens if I (my agency) regularly exceed my levels of service?” You might think that this is always going to be a good thing—after all, we should under-promise and over-perform, right? Unfortunately, no good deed goes unpunished! This takes us into that rather murky legal realm of liability and risk—not a good place to be. Of course, the legal situation is very different in different parts of North America, and any policy should be reviewed by legal staff before being adopted, but there are indications that if you consistently exceed the goals that are in your document, in some jurisdictions you will be deemed to have adopted a new (and higher) set of levels of service goals. So, you may be creating a higher standard for your agency than you wish to!

So, you and your staff will draft up the plan (with possible computer assistance) and submit it to your elected officials for their approval. But, what are the right goals for your community? As noted above, different communities have (and should have) different standards in this regard. There are two aspects to this question. First, you have to make sure your community is informed about your current levels of service goals—many agencies do this by websites or by community newsletters. Then, if you are going to change your levels of service (or are even thinking about changing them) you need to have some open meetings to discuss what the levels are and what the costs associated with changing those levels might be. So, what happens if your community decides to change the levels of service? Well, if they are looking to raise them (make more roads look like Interstates, as in Figure 3) then costs will go up. They need to know this. You may also need to use more snow and ice control materials (rock salt and brine) than at present. People should be aware of these impacts. Then, if they decide to make the change, they know it will www.apwa.net

Related to this, it is important to note (in your policy document and also in your plans in general) that sometimes Mother Nature wins, and there will always be that storm for which we simply cannot achieve our goals in a timely manner—think an inch of ice, for example. Somewhere in your policy document there should be a statement to the effect that the levels of service goals are intended for normal winter storms and in cases of severe storms the goals may not be met. But even with all these caveats, warnings and concerns, the levels of service really are critical to your winter maintenance operations—because if you do not have them, you will not know where you are going.

INTERNATIONAL IDEA EXCHANGE RedR Australia: Building back better in Nepal

C

ivil construction engineer Martin O’Malley says his extensive experience working on public works projects helped prepare him for international humanitarian work with RedR Australia. “The stakeholders in an international emergency relief setting are many and diverse and the strategy you develop for dealing with them will determine how successful you are,” O’Malley says. “Being service oriented is important too as, ultimately, that is what we do in a humanitarian context—deliver a service to people who need it.” O’Malley was deployed by RedR Australia to work with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the principal

intergovernmental organization in the field of migration. During the Nepal earthquake response, the IOM provided leadership support on shelter construction to the international humanitarian community. O’Malley has spent three months in the Sindhupalchok district of Nepal, one of region’s most severely affected by the earthquakes last year. More than 80% of Sindhupalchok’s buildings were fully or completely damaged and 3,557 people, including 949 children, were killed. O’Malley, who lived in a tent during his assignment, was responsible for coordinating the various agencies involved in shelter relief distributions, winterization planning and the recovery and reconstruction planning

in the district. This involved collecting and mapping information on their activities and advocating for them to provide support to regions that were under serviced. In this way, he sought to ensure a more equitable distribution of aid and reduced duplication. His team was also responsible for monitoring and interviewing beneficiaries about the support they received from IOM’s contracted partners. “My experience dealing with public meetings and councilors in my previous role was a fantastic preparation for being involved with the United Nations, INGO and NGO organizations that I worked with in Nepal,” O’Malley says. “We work in a bureaucratic system and that will not change so having exposure to this is really useful in terms of reporting and stakeholder involvement. I think one of the key lessons that I brought from working with a council in New Zealand is that most people are willing and able to assist with the aim of a particular project. “What we need to do, as technical representatives, is to put the descriptions in plain language so that people understand everything clearly and can be confident they know exactly what it is that we are trying to achieve. Once you can inform people effectively, you have gone a significant

and the structure relies on its weight and that of the roof to keep things in place,” O’Malley explains.

O’Malley and his colleagues spent time advocating for communities to build back better and safer by using banding/ ring beams and tie stones at corners and throughout the walls.

RedR Australia relieves suffering in disasters by selecting, training and providing competent and committed personnel to humanitarian relief agencies worldwide. They have 17 experts deployed in 12 crisis-affected countries, and are responding to the European refugee crisis, the severe flooding in Myanmar and the civil war in South Sudan. RedR is funded by government grants, corporate partners and public donations, and is supported by IPWEA in Australasia. IPWEA is one of APWA’s international partners.

part of the way to getting their support and buy-in.” In 2011, O’Malley spent a couple of weeks consulting on the Christchurch earthquake response. He says when he compares Nepal’s survivors to those in New Zealand, he is struck by the universal resilience of people, and how they can quickly adapt during emergencies. “However, there were stark differences between the responses,” O’Malley continues. “The local authorities and the private sector played a significant role in the aftermath of the Christchurch quake which was missing in Nepal. Obviously, the financial capacity of the population has a lot to do with how people recover, but also the mechanisms that are in place in a country like New Zealand such as mental health support, unemployment support and many other things that are just not available to the Nepalese.” O’Malley says a lot of the damage that occurred in his district of Nepal resulted from the traditional housing construction method. “Most houses are constructed with two layers of stone on either side of a mud filling that’s used to bond the stones

Sustainable park renovations bring nature to a neighborhood Charlotte Katzenmoyer Director of Public Works City of Lancaster, Pennsylvania

N

ot far from bustling downtown Lancaster, Pa., Brandon Park is tucked away in a quiet residential area of single-family houses, providing a welcome green space for neighborhood children and families to enjoy. Situated in the valley of a former creek that was piped as part of the City’s combined sewer system in the early 1900s, the recent renovation of Brandon Park capitalized on this natural drainage pattern. In 2012,

the 7.4-acre park received a $1.7 million park renovation and is an example of the City’s commitment to implementing its Green Infrastructure (GI) Plan. In addition to the installation of GI to control stormwater runoff, park amenities were upgraded, which enhance the quality of the park experience for all users. As an urban park, all improvements focused on park amenities like basketball courts, play equipment, picnic areas, R D F -75 D I E S E L

restroom facilities, benches, lighting and an interactive accessible public art display. New paved and repaved trails provide ADA-compliant access to the natural areas of the park and from the surrounding neighborhoods into the park. All stormwater facilities were arranged to respect the new and existing park amenities, visual aesthetics and historic drainage conditions. Integrating GI into physical improvements is a major emphasis of the City’s program. Four vegetated curb extensions with subsurface infiltration facilities were constructed within the right-of-way on each of the corners at the intersection of Wabank Street and Brandon Court, managing stormwater from both these street surfaces and other impervious areas from adjoining residential properties. The curb extensions provide an added benefit of calming traffic and increasing safety for neighborhood students and children walking to adjacent Price Elementary Scholl and the Lancaster Recreation Center. Access into the park at this location is via a pedestrian trail flanked by two rain gardens planted with native shrubs, grasses, perennials and ferns. A small play structure with a porous surface is sited in this area. A total of 12 bioretention areas were the constructed throughout the park. These facilities, as well as other onsite best management practices (BMPs), were designed to work in series.


parking lot medians to further enhance the aesthetics of the park. The park contains many mature trees and large areas of lawn which have been retained and enhanced. Prior to rehabilitation the wooded areas along the park's perimeter were overgrown and unmanaged. Ten existing trees were removed and 30 new trees planted. New landscaping areas were designed for both aesthetics and stormwater control. Plant material was chosen for differing levels of tolerance to shade and/or sun and wet and dry conditions. The plantings are primarily native perennials and shrubs that create a unique urban ecosystem to help support wildlife and make the city more livable.

Highly channelized erosive areas of the park were replaced with rain gardens and grass channels to connect BMPs in series.

The bioretention areas are in the form of rain gardens, swales and vegetated curb extensions. A large variety of

reconstructed using porous asphalt pavement with subsurface infiltration facilities. Typical porous asphalt consists of 1.5” porous asphalt surface course, 3” asphalt treated permeable base, a 1” optional choker course. Depending on the drainage area and amount of stormwater storage capacity desired, between one and three feet of clean and washed AASHTO two or three uniformly graded coarse aggregate comprises the infiltration bed wrapped on the sides and bottom by a nonwoven geo-textile. This design provides a 40% void area maximizing storage capacity. An additional benefit of using porous asphalt for basketball courts is the sound dampening effect. Most BMPs were designed to provide flood storage capacity up to or exceeding the 100-year storm, sized for a static storage volume of at

least one inch of runoff. Overflows are directed in a safe and stabilized manner to either downhill BMPs or to existing/new inlets. In addition, all BMPs were designed with an underdrain option in the event of poor permeability or system failure such as extreme clogging. The underdrains of all bioretention systems have been initially capped but the caps can be removed or have a small diameter orifice drilled into them. Furthermore, the outlet structures of all the porous pavement and bioretention areas contain weirs in which small diameter orifices can be drilled as needed. Each BMP has a minimum four-inch diameter perforated pipe for distribution over the infiltration area. The bioretention systems were designed with 24-inch diameter overflow structures with the optional underdrains and underlain by an

aggregate infiltration bed ranging in thickness and wrapped in geotextile. An additional stormwater management practice utilized at the park consists of inlet filter inserts for pretreatment and filtering sediment from stormwater as it enters the inlet. All this GI requires specialized maintenance varying by season. City staff is specially trained to follow these procedures and schedules for each maintenance task. Standard maintenance procedures, including a detailed description of tasks and frequency, have been developed to be compatible with the City’s asset management tracking procedures. Brandon Park’s GI eliminates more than 3.8 million gallons of stormwater from entering the sewer system annually, making it the City’s largest green infrastructure project. Each year, in addition to the 3.8 million gallons of stormwater, the combined BMPs are expected to remove an estimated 6,200 pounds of total suspended sediment, 310 pounds of total nitrogen and 120 pounds of total phosphorus. These nutrients and sediments are being kept from flowing in the Conestoga River and eventually the Chesapeake Bay. In order to be sustainable, and improve and protect the social, economic and environmental qualities of the community, it is vital to identify ways for integrating capital improvements such as park rehabilitation and street reconstruction with green infrastructure. A further sustainable practice employed at the park was to install solar panels on the roof of the Recreation Center to power the lights in the public art installation, Revolutions.

The Energy Revolution How Baltimore is using innovative clean power at City facilities ShontĂŠ Eldridge, PMP Chief, Special Projects Department of Public Works City of Baltimore, Maryland

A

revolution is taking place in the energy industry that is creating opportunities that were not economically possible 5 to 10 years ago. These opportunities allow for increased reliability of operations, cleaner air, and reduced carbon emissions. At the turn of the century almost 60% of the electricity in the United States was produced from coal. Today that number has dropped to 45% and in the spring of 2015 more electricity was produced from natural gas than coal. Twice the number of Americans work in the solar industry than in the coal industry and over 30% of the new generating capacity built in the U.S. in the past year was solar. New, less expensive, small-scale generating technologies, combined with lower cost natural gas, are opening new opportunities for municipalities to generate energy and save money.

The Department of Public Works operates the water and wastewater facilities for the City of Baltimore and surrounding metropolitan area. Operation of these facilities represents more than half of the City government annual energy use. A combination of an increasing demand and more stringent environmental requirements will more than double the energy demand of these facilities over the next five years. Recognizing the growing energy demand combined with the need for increased reliability of energy supply systems, the City took steps to implement a three-part energy program: buy smart, use less, and generate our own energy. The first generation application was conducted at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant, which is located on 466 acres,

serves 1.3 million residents and has the capacity to treat 180 million gallons of wastewater a day. In 2010 a two megawatt (MW) combined heat and power (CHP) facility began operation at the Back River plant. Two stage anaerobic digesters produce a gas with 60% methane content. This gas is burned in internal combustion engines with low NOx burners. The CHP2 facility operates at an efficiency in excess of 65%, far better than the average large-scale power plant operating around 40% efficiency. In addition, with a grant from the U.S Department of Energy, the City formed a partnership with Hy-TEK to conduct a demonstration of an algae system to remove NOx and carbon dioxide. A slipstream of 10% of the flue gas from the CHP plant is bubbled through tanks of algae, which removes 99% of the NOx and over 80% of the carbon dioxide. Primarily, the function of the algae technology is to clean the flue gas with the additional benefits of producing algae with a market potential of $18$40/pound, depending on the algae and the market. In addition to algae, oxygen can also be produced for market or utilized in the aerobic digesters in another wastewater treatment facility operated by the City. In addition to the CHP facility at Back River, in March of 2012 a 1 MW solar field also began operation. The combined production of the solar and biomass CHP facilities represents approximately 18% of the Back River electricity demand. Under

The current plant provides the heat for the buildings with the expansion expected to provide the heat for the anaerobic digesters. With the use of internal combustion engines in the CHP, a large portion of the heat comes from the jacket cooling which produces hot water. A pipe in a pipe heat exchanger is being tested to preheat the sludge which will reduce the steam needs in the digestion reactor.

of delivered power is 9.25 cents. The composition of the electricity cost has changed; the electricity commodity has dropped from 6-7 cents to 3.5-4.5 cents. However, the cost of delivery and the capacity charges have increased 50%. In addition to lower cost electricity from the renewable facilities, the cost of the 70 million KWhr of electricity purchased for operating Back River is also less. This is due to a lower capacity charge as a result of generating electricity behind the meter during the five peak hours in the year.

Debt financing was used for both renewable projects and the savings from the projects repay the debt. Originally the economic analysis supporting the CHP investment was based upon seven-cent delivered cost for power. When the facility began operation in 2010 the cost of delivered power was 11 cents. Today the cost

The success of these clean energy projects at the Back River Wastewater Treatment Plant provided the technical, economic and legal experience for the City of Baltimore to expand the use of clean energy technology. In December 2015, the City government started to receive production from a 10 MW solar farm. www.apwa.net

This is being done through a virtual net aggregate metering structure with the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. The credit for the solar production will be applied to the meters for libraries, recreation centers and fire stations. The City is actively developing 30-40 MW of solar fields predominately located on closed landfills. In addition, the City is evaluating 15-20 MW of CHP for wastewater and water plants and a micro-grid for a complex of office buildings in downtown Baltimore. Low-cost natural gas combined with lower cost, more efficient, smaller scale generation technology are enabling municipalities to reduce the costs of energy in addition to implementing energy efficiency programs.

Investigation of a building gone bad Chuck Thomas HVAC Specialist City of West Des Moines, Iowa

T

his article will provide a look at the daily challenges of maintaining a building that was not built to the specifications and standards that were detailed in the construction documents. The overall wellness and health of the building and its occupants was low on the priority list by the contractor who constructed it. To those who bear the burden of maintaining it, not only physically but financially, this improperly constructed building will be the gift that keeps giving until all of the listed items below are addressed. A building that gains its architectural accolades for design does not necessarily win an award for comfort. Case in point: a 14-year-old building with a heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system that is in need of a total replacement. The building in question is a fire station with 24/7 operation and several varying occupancies. The three-level building has an apparatus bay and a series of mixed-use rooms on the lower level which are fed from the air handling units that are located on a mezzanine level. There are two mezzanines. The mezzanine on the north houses an air handling unit (AHU), heating water boiler and domestic water heater. The south mezzanine houses an AHU and the building’s air compressor. The upper level consists of a meeting room, kitchen/day room, fitness room, fire and EMS offices, and sleeping rooms.

This building has a history of issues, some of which are the flagpole base sinking 16” in a year and a half, roof leaks, a second floor balcony that slopes back to the building, an HVAC system that has wide swings in temperature, leaky windows, and, well, you get the picture. After several years it became apparent that the HVAC system was directly causing some of the issues. This temperature swing was causing mold in the fitness room. A check of the heating water loop found the loop supply temperature set-point was 160 degrees, but the building automation system (BAS) showed the loop supply temperature running from 95 degrees, then cycling up to 160 degrees, and then dropping back down. This constant cycling up and down was not coming from the BAS. Due to an outdoor air reset schedule, the setpoint was changing as the outdoor air temperature changed. The boiler enable relay was found not to be the problem. The BAS computer is located in the same room as the boiler which made it easy to watch the controls as well as the boiler. It was determined the issue was with the boiler, not the BAS. The investigation started focusing on the boiler which has a 1,000,000 British Thermal Unit (BTU) firing rate with no modulation, 1,000,000 BTU’s all the time. This is a very poor choice for energy efficiency unless you need it all the time, which a typical comfort heating boiler would rarely need. It www.apwa.net

was determined that the flow switch, a safety device that only allows the boiler to operate with a safe water flow rate, was not recognizing the minimum gallons per minute (GPM) flow rate required for boiler operation. Believing the flow switch was defective, the GPM was measured and found to be far less than the minimum flow rate required for proper operation. Checking the mechanical prints showed no three-way valves or bypass valves designed or installed. These valves would allow constant water flow through the piping system whether or not any heat is needed by the AHU’s or reheat coils. Without some method of keeping the flow rate at the boiler minimum GPM, it would require several heating valves open to establish enough flow allowing the boiler to operate. This caused the heating water boiler to come on when approximately half the system valves were open. The space temperatures would then overshoot, becoming too warm, then cool down until enough valves opened to allow the boiler to operate. The cycling up and down of space temperature was not only causing the spaces to be uncomfortable but contributed to mold growth on some surfaces. This was corrected with the addition of several three-way valves and a program upgrade to the control system. The oversized boiler still continues to be an issue from an energy and comfort standpoint.


The cooling for the building was designed and installed with its own issues. The units were installed in an enclosure built into a hillside which had 18-foot-high walls on two sides, and a 10-foot gate and wall on the other two sides. This design worked well to conceal the units from view, but did not allow the essential air flow required to dissipate the heat. Unfortunately, all the safeties that protected the units from high temperature were disconnected. With measured temperatures of 150 degrees inside the enclosure on a July day, it’s understandable why the safeties were bypassed; but this is never a good idea. The two direct expansion (DX) cooling units are the same size, fifteen tons each, with one serving the north side and the other serving the south side. It seemed odd with two vastly different loads that a load calculation would call for the same size unit. Due to extreme heat as well as the units being dismantled numerous times per year to clean out the condenser coils (due to cotton seed plugging the coils), the units needed changed approximately five years ahead of their expected life cycle. Before changing the units with likesize units, a mechanical engineer was brought in to do a load calculation. The engineer found that the cooling units, as well as the AHU’s, were undersized. The calculations also showed the boiler to be oversized. With all the building issues it was decided to go one step further and hire a building envelope commissioning contractor to check the overall building envelope. This included the building’s wall, window and roof assemblies. The exterior walls underwent destructive testing which showed vapor barrier not being to specification. More issues included insulation behind the brick wall which

was one and one-half inches (not the two inches specified) as well as metal stud walls that were not insulated properly, or even at all, around some beam pockets. Also not meeting specifications was the glazing for the doors and windows. The building has two roofing materials. One of the materials is EPDM membrane ballasted with washed river aggregate. This section would require extensive repairs due to inadequate attention to detail at the time of installation. It is recommended for a full replacement with a fully adhered membrane roof. The second roofing material is a TeePanel metal roof system. The roof panels themselves are showing signs of the finish beginning to fail as well as improperly installed flashing, ridge caps, and rake edge metal. The EPDM membrane roof was not terminated properly where it meets the metal roof. If the finish issue can be resolved, the Tee-Panels themselves could be removed and the other installation issues, i.e., flashing and caps, could be repaired and the panels then could be replaced. What started out as an HVAC system in need of repair or replacement is now a building that needs a major building envelope upgrade to correct a large number of the building's issues. With the amount of capital investment required to repair the building envelope and the HVAC system, it will require a multi-year phased approach. The issue becomes which gets taken care of first. The HVAC systems have been requiring supplementary maintenance and repair on top of the normal preventive maintenance. Hopefully the decision to fund the overall project and make the

www.apwa.net

necessary repairs and replacement of critical equipment will be made soon, and the work can begin under the eyes of a commissioning agent. As we reflect upon the pointed information that this article has presented, we have to ask ourselves as those who maintain and repair these structures, was the fox guarding the hen house when these structures were built? And why, in this day and age of modern advancement, can’t we build a building that will last for at least 100 years or more with proper construction and maintenance? Currently there are a large number of buildings that have been, or will be, listed on the historic registry that are well over the 100-year mark. The questions at this point that you may be pondering are why are those buildings still standing and functioning, and why are they not having the same issues that this building is facing after only 14 years? The assumption that most stakeholders have is that the contractor, engineer and architect are all doing their part in making sure we receive what we are paying for. This is where the advantage of a commissioning agent becomes one of the most valuable resources we have. They become that extra set of eyes providing direction to the project and likewise ensuring the owner that quality construction materials and methods were adhered to.

BECAUSE SUSTAINABILITY IS A PRIORITY

DRIVABILITY MATTERS

“When I bike to work or around town, I am getting exercise and reducing my impact on the environment. At work, I analyze the environmental impact of infrastructure, including roadways. Asphalt pavements are 100% recyclable and can be produced with energy-saving warm-mix technologies. That makes asphalt the sustainable choice, whether you are on two, four, or even 18 wheels. That matters.” -Lianna Miller | Engineer | Commuter

n December 2, 2015 at a San Bernardino County office holiday party, active shooters opened fire where 14 innocent people were killed and 22 were injured, most of them county employees. This is too close to home. Nationwide, there is an increased threat from workplace violence and active shooters. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement agencies support prevention efforts and employee safety awareness. Facilities departments have an important role in improving the safety and security of public buildings. As facilities professionals, we are responsible for ensuring that our public facilities are clean, safe and inviting to our employees and citizens who enjoy using our recreational facilities, obtaining a permit at the public counter, or paying a water bill at city hall. The following steps were successful in improving safety and security at the City of Ventura public facilities.

3. Solutions – Implement Solutions a. Panic buttons alerting system b. Access control to monitor and control access or entry into a building or work area c. Approved ID badges and access control credentials d. Background check for access to critical facilities – contractors, janitors, etc. e. Best Management Practices f. Public safety or third-party monitoring g. Employee Safety Awareness Training and evacuation drills

1. Assess – Perform a building security audit and assess weaknesses in public buildings, such as windows left open, doors not properly locking, or inadequate security lighting.

The Ventura Police Department worked with employees at City buildings and in the office areas to evaluate the building and work areas for security/safety issues. After the evaluation, police presented a safety briefing to employees dealing with everything from what to do with an unruly customer to an active shooter situation. This was extremely helpful to strengthen the employees’ safety awareness, the Police Department’s familiarity with the building layout, and to receive recommendations from the public safety.

2. Evaluate – Identify and evaluate options for improved security including access control, security cameras, how to respond to an incident in progress, and hours of operation, security guard services, or employee safety awareness training.

The Facilities and Police Departments selected the Hirsch Velocity security system for City buildings based on reliability, durability, and compliance to the military and Department of Justice requirements. Ventura’s

Active monitoring screen

Hirsch Velocity access control security system hardware consists of several 8-Door Controller HID Reader, Reader Interface Card, Mounting Box for Reader Interface, Door Electric Strike, Wireless Transmitter with Panic Switch, Power Supply, Cabling, HID Proximity Cards or Key Proximity Fobs, a dedicated network server and internet connection to administrative workstations. The biggest challenge was to install a state-of-the-art security system in the 100-year-old historic City Hall with marble, architectural wood paneling and historic doors and door frames. It was a satisfying accomplishment to complete the access control security project with improved security for the employees and with an aesthetically pleasing installation of the readers and modifications to the doors and hardware. After the hardware and software installation, the systems must be programmed with the door credentials for hours open or locked, who has authorized access to the area, and integrating the information to the monitoring station. As part of the implementation of the access control system, administrative processes were evaluated and

implemented. It is important to educate the employees to promote a safe and secure culture within the public buildings and workplaces. The employees may see wearing a badge or carrying a key fob as an inconvenience, but this attitude needs to change. Ventura collaborated with the Police Department to provide a building security assessment and made recommendations for improvements. The workplace safety policy requires employees to visibly wear identification so that an employee can be easily identified when the police arrive on scene of a threat to workplace safety. Many interior office areas that are not accessible to the public are locked with access-controlled doors. Public counter offices, such as the building department permit counter, are open during business hours. These office areas require panic buttons to silently notify police of an unsafe issue. Areas like these need more than one means of egress in the event of an emergency. Employee safety is also enhanced by installing ballistic-rated panels within the counter so the employee or innocent bystander can shelter in place. Other administrative measures include minimizing points of entry www.apwa.net

Most public agencies have good relationships with their local public safety departments and promote collaboration to ensure the safety and security of employees and visitors. The Ventura Police Department provides monitoring of the security system and will respond accordingly to a threat in City buildings. Depending on the services provided within an office area, the level of security is increased for more restrictive areas that include security cameras and limited access to employees. The Treasury Department in City Hall is one example of an increased level of security because of the amount of money that is processed. The City standardized on a citywide network platform that is monitored by the Police Department. The monitoring of the security network is effective for law enforcement to look when an incident is in progress or to be notified immediately through a panic button or alarm. Police and Facilities maintain the credentials for all the employees and coordinate with Human Resources for an active list of employees. The City of Ventura continues to expand access control throughout City Hall and other public buildings. While the installation of access control hardware may cost $7,500 for one door, the access control and security systems are a necessary investment and less costly than the loss of a coworker or innocent citizen.

Right-of-way mowing and maintenance A historical perspective for outsourced services Deodat Budhu, P.E., Manager, and Elizabeth Serrano, Project Manager, Roads & Drainage Division, Orange County Public Works Department, Orlando, Florida

O

verview

Historical Background

To provide citizens with the level of service they require, the Orange County Roads and Drainage Division has eight Maintenance Units strategically located throughout the 1,000 square miles of unincorporated Orange County to provide maintenance services to existing roadways, secondary drainage and infrastructure. To maintain an efficient level of services, additional sections within the division provide support to those maintenance operations. Some of the services are provided by in-house crews while others are outsourced to contractors. The current maintenance outsourced work covers the three main functions in regards to roadway, secondary drainage, and infrastructure maintenance. As part of the roadway maintenance activities, the County outsources most of the right-of-way mowing operations. More than 3,400 acres of roadway right-of-way are maintained once every four to six weeks. Since in subdivisions the majority of the rights-of-way are maintained by property owners, most of this outsourced right-of-way operations is performed on arterial and collector roads. Activities performed by right-of-way contractors include mowing, litter and grass clipping removal, edging, herbicide treatment, fertilization, inlet throat cleaning and brush control. 52

The County started outsourcing mowing operations during the late ’90s. Contracted areas, although limited to specific maintenance districts, were proven too big for contractors to handle. Services were paid as specific line items (e.g., mowing, herbicide treatment for weed control, edging, etc.) giving contractors opportunity to perform only the most lucrative services, neglecting others. Some contractors depended on the slow growing season of the year to bring contracted areas up to contract standards to avoid losing their contract due to lack of performance. Since at the time, contracts did not have penalties to ensure contractor’s performance, the County had to rely on lengthy documentation of problems as an attempt to promptly resolve those performance issues and ensure continuation of maintenance services. Numerous failing contractors defaulted on their contracts leaving behind additional work for the Maintenance Units to promptly complete in order to prevent safety, health and liability issues to both residents and the County. To assist in the resolution to some of those issues, several changes were incorporated to the contracts. Areas were separated to make them more manageable to contractors, www.apwa.net

services were streamlined to prevent contractors to continue performing some but not all required services, and penalties such as liquidated damages and re-inspection fees were added to the contracts. Those changes created other challenges to the County as more contractors became interested in providing services to the County. Some of those contractors included residential and commercial contractors with limited amount of resources to provide required services. Lack of understanding of contract specifications and underestimation of resources and needs became a new issue for the County to deal with. Small contractors, most of them prices per acres similar to the ones charged for residential lots, struggled to fulfill contractual requirements in regards to completion of cycles. Maintenance of contracted areas once again started falling behind schedule as contractors tried to keep their contracts during the rainy season.

Contractors’ Failure and Issues to the County Most of those contractors failed providing services due to one or more of the following factors: • Lack of understanding contract requirements and specifications • Lack of experience


• Lack of resources (equipment and personnel)

c u lv e r t S o l u t i o n S

• Substandard equipment • Unrealistic bid prices for required services • Multiple contract awards • Loss of insurance Their lack of performance and failure to comply with contract requirements resulted in: • Line of sight issues • Citizens’ safety concerns • Safety concerns in school zones • Safety concerns regarding sidewalks • Flooding as a result of lack of ditch maintenance • Commissioners’ concerns • Hire emergency contractors for triple the cost • Overtime pay for Maintenance Units to “put out fires” • Extra time spent by staff to train emergency contractors and conduct pre-work drive-through areas • Excessive cleanup to reclaim county rights-of-way and property

‘NO DIG’ Culvert Repair and Rehab Snap-Tite ® is the answer to better culvert repair and rehabilitation no matter how challenging the project. It’s become the install option of choice for DOTs, Departments of Public Works and engineers everywhere. It’s safer, easier and faster; your own crew can do the work – and costly road closures and traffic disruption are avoided.

It’s a ‘SNAP’. Pre-cut sections of machined HDPE pipe (6” to 63” OD) are ‘snapped’ together and pushed through the length of the existing deteriorated pipe, delivering better flow and a watertight seal at all joints.

Average Cost Determination To assist contractors in making an educated determination of prices for contracted areas, County staff engaged in the determination of average cost per acre for each of the maintained areas taking into consideration not only those prices for successful and failing contractors but the cost for inhouse operations, other municipalities and market conditions.

contractors. The representation of the average historical cost trend, per fiscal year for mowing operations utilized is shown below. Evaluated information includes term and emergency service costs utilized to ensure continuation of maintenance activities (see below). Price fluctuations for 2010 reflect the crude reality contractors have dealt with for many years; lowcost contractors not only delay maintenance of the areas but skyrocket prices when it is time to bring them back up to standard. Since every area is unique in nature, careful determination of equipment needs and cost is needed to ensure proper continuation of services. This

Pricing. Proposed prices for services to be provided were compared to the specific estimated cost for the area. Those unit prices were also evaluated for consistency with other submitted bids as another indicator of acceptability. Since price differentials could be the result of market fluctuations and time, therefore an individual choice of the respective bidders depending on their available resources and experience with similar contracts, to properly determine acceptability of pricing a unit price, a tolerance percent scale could have been applied for determination. The upper and lower limits for the price tolerance percentage range in general were Âą15% of the unit price in accordance to common economic standards.

information was incorporated as part of the bid package as historical data for their guidance and was not mandatory on them. Additional information such as detailed listing of areas to be maintained was still part of information provided to contractors for bidding purposes.

Evaluation of Bidders As part of competitive invitation for bidding process, received bid packages for services to be provided were reviewed and evaluated based on the following criteria: responsiveness; responsibility (including references and similar experience); technical compliance with the specifications; and acceptability of price:

Following those guidelines, charts were developed for determination of acceptability of price for each one of the bidders (see above chart).

Resources. As part of the qualification of bidders, contractors were required to provide a written signed statement that resources were available, understanding of contract requirements and suitability of prices.


Based on provided information, bidders were evaluated to determine compliance for available resources. References and Experience. Contractors were also evaluated to determine proven experience with similar contracts. That experience allowed contractors not only to

determine if they had the capability of performing as required on contract specifications but to also determine resources needed and acceptable prices for the services. This information also provided an indication of the quality of services provided by contractors to other entities and agencies they had provided services to. Most of our

mowing contracts required contractors to have at least two years of relevant experience on similar contracts and the capability of maintaining a specific amount of acres combined. Previous contracts with the County were also taken into consideration during the evaluation of the responsiveness of the contractors. Based on provided and verified information, bidders were evaluated to determine compliance with the references and experience (see p. 56). Overall Acceptability of the Bid.

• Detailed information of the training and safety programs given to all employees regarding proper use of equipment and procedures. • Name on copy of the license for one Certified Pest Control License with Pesticide Application qualified in right-of-way category on staff. • Statement that one company representative at each work site shall be fluent in the English language.

This summary included as a minimum not only the evaluation criteria for determination of bidders’ responsibility but had to take into consideration the County’s best interest for consideration of contract awards from the Division’s perspective and needs.

New Approach Despite the County’s efforts to assist contractors to make an educated determination of resources needed and reasonable price for services to be provided, contractors continued failing to perform as required in contract documents.

needs for services, several contractors were pre-qualified based on the following criteria:

Experience • Minimum of three consecutive years of right-of-way mowing services provided for commercial or governmental properties. Services are to be provided in urban/rural areas covering over 100 acres. • Minimum of three current commercial or government references with brief description of the work, location, dates of contract. • Copy of current occupational license.

To remedy this situation, the County recently decided to pre-qualify contractors to provide right-of-way mowing services as another strategy to ensure continuation of services while minimizing contractors’ failures to perform due to lack of resources or proper understanding of contract requirements. In addition, minimum guaranteed of six cycles and a one-time cleanup cycle is built into the contracts to open price competition among contractors.

• Time firm has been in business under current name.

• Statement that all employees assigned to work on any contract for the County are legal U.S. citizens or possess eligibility from the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service to be employed in the United States. • Written statement acknowledging that all staff will be required to perform all obligations and functions on County property in a professional and business-like manner and must wear uniforms identifying the company name. • List of operations managers and supervisors of leased, rented or owned equipment used in rightof-way mowing operations. At a minimum the equipment list must include the following: o 15-feet Batwing (1) o Slope Mower (1)

Staffing • List of operations managers and supervisors by name and title including résumés and job description. Managers must have a minimum of five years verifiable experience and supervisors must have a minimum of three years verifiable experience working on commercial or governmental rightof-way and public properties.

Equipment must be maintained to meet OSHA and manufacturer requirements and be able to perform the job in a safe and professional manner. (The County reserves the right to visually inspect the equipment and place of business.)

Although it would be the prequalified contractor’s responsibility not to overextend their operations accepting more work than they are capable of handling at a time, it is still our responsibility to ensure that contractors continue providing required services in accordance

to contract specifications and requirements at an acceptable and fair price to the County. Deodat Budhu can be reached at (407) 836-7887 or deodat.budhu@ocfl.net; Elizabeth Serrano can be reached at (407) 836-7887 or Elizabeth.Serrano@ocfl.net.

Resource Estimating • Based on specific acreage amounts, specify the resources to be employed to satisfactorily complete a mowing cycle within allotted time. Resources are to be identified in terms of the manpower by position and equipment by type and quantity. • Written plan on how the equipment type and quantity and manpower/ position quantity were determined for providing service to each area listed.

Expectations Although the utilization of prequalified contractors has just begun, it is expected that maintenance activities would be provided on a continuous level. Although weather delays could adversely affect the duration of any particular cycle, the contractor’s experience and available resources should provide a positive turnaround to ensure property continuation of services. Processes in place for bid evaluations remain in place and the responsibility for determination of acceptability of prices still remain regardless of the pre-qualification process. Open market conditions and competition are driving service costs to a more competitive level. Therefore, it is important to keep in mind those constraints for which contractors are unable to comply with contract requirements.

Developing an ADA Transition Plan Kristi J. Avalos President and CEO Accessology Too, Inc. McKinney, Texas

T

he Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is more than 25 years old now. So why, all of a sudden, is there so much pressure to have a current ADA Transition Plan? Let’s begin by explaining what an ADA Transition Plan is. It’s a document required by the Department of Justice that includes the following components: 1. A list of physical barriers that limit accessibility to services/programs 2. A detailed outline of the methods proposed to address the barriers

3. A schedule for achieving compliance 4. The name of the official responsible for the plan’s implementation (likely department level) In 2010, at the 20th Anniversary of the signing of the ADA, all of the federal agencies recommitted to the ADA noting that agencies have had 20 years to voluntarily come into compliance and if they haven’t, penalties and enforcement action will be sought through a program developed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) called “Project Civic Access,” a concentrated effort to ensure that Title II entities are coming into compliance.

Washington Chapter holds Committee Summit Members of the Washington Chapter met on February 25 for the APWA Committee Summit. The day’s agenda included topics such as “APWA 101,” “Committee Alignment with Chapter Mission/Values” and “Promoting & Supporting Committees.”

How does the DOJ know if the entity is coming into compliance? Well, because they have an active Transition Plan and they are working it. That’s the easiest way for the DOJ to know if an entity is doing what is necessary. A Transition Plan isn’t something which was developed back in the early ’90s and has been sitting on a shelf ever since. A Transition Plan isn’t just a sidewalk and curb ramp inventory, although the inventory is necessary to the plan. An ADA Transition Plan is a living document. It’s an accessibility Master Plan and needs to be treated like any other Master Plan. It should be updated regularly and, initially, include a full evaluation of everything offered by the entity, including a complete sidewalk, curb ramp and intersection evaluation. But it’s so much more. An inventory has to be done of each facility and park owned, operated or leased by the agency as well as all programs, policies, service and activities. This includes hiring and firing practices, job descriptions, emergency planning procedures, parks and rec programs, and the list goes on. Remember that sidewalks and curb ramps are also “programs” offered by most public entities. Without the last three elements, the Transition Plan would just be an inventory. The necessary documentation of how the issues will be resolved, when the issues will be resolved and who is responsible are critical to the overall plan and that is what the DOJ will be looking for if they call and ask for your plan. Many public entities haven’t begun the ADA Transition Plan process because they don’t know where to begin. Here are the steps to follow to get this in place:

Step 1 − Designating an ADA Coordinator

time, and resources to accomplish the duties.

The ADA Coordinator is a required position. It needs to be a person who is familiar with agency operations, trained or knowledgeable in ADA and other nondiscrimination laws (Title VI, Title VII), has sufficient authority,

There needs to be one person as the named ADA Coordinator, but Accessology recommends there is a responsible person in each major department that acts as the ADA

liaison between their department and the ADA Coordinator. Suggested position locations: Office of CEO, Civil Rights Office, Legal Department, Planning, Public Information. Regardless of where, the ADA Coordinator must have authority to impact programs.

Step 2 − Providing Public Notice about ADA Requirements The public must be notified about rights under the ADA and the responsibility of the agency under the ADA. The notices developed should be ongoing/continuous basis. Each entity must decide what is effective for them. Accessology recommends an accessible website is at a minimum. The entity must provide the ability for the community to offer comments and have someone in place to follow-up with them. There is also a requirement to “reach out to the local disability community” and this can be done in a number of ways. Public outreach should involve activists, advocacy groups, general citizens, organizations that support the rights of the disabled, elected official, Governor’s Council, as well as other agencies (local and state).

Step 3 − Establishing a Grievance Procedure The grievance procedure should include: • A description of how and where a complaint under Title II may be filed with the government entity; • A description of the time frames and processes to be followed by the complainant and the government entity; • Information on how to appeal an adverse decision; and, • A statement of how long complaint files will be retained. 60

APWA Reporter

/

April 2016

/

The procedure should enable the filing of complaints in a variety of forms and formats. Once a state or local government establishes a grievance procedure under the ADA, it should be distributed to all agency heads.

Step 4 − Developing internal design standards, specifications, details Use the ADAAG, IBC, and PROWAG to develop your accessibility standards, but make sure you have the latest versions. Older versions can cause a project to be non-compliant. Along with this should be your policies and standards and should also include:

Accessology recommends field investigations include extensive photos of site investigations, detailed data collection forms and that the data becomes more usable by putting it into your existing data management/GISbased system.

Step 6 − Approving a schedule and budget to implement the Transition Plan Once all of the data is collected you can determine what the dollar amount will be to decide what actions to schedule each year to address barriers. Properly placed budgets will help the annual planning process.

• Detectable Warnings • Policy on use of Accessible Pedestrian Signals • Transit/Para-transit & access to stations • Furniture/Landscaping Zones • Shared Use Paths

Projects need to be prioritized using a priority system and ranking process. This will help determine which projects need to be done first and which can wait a few years and get them scheduled annually.

• Trails

Step 7 − Monitoring progress on implementation of the Transition Plan

Always remember that these standards are minimum standards so you can set your in-house standard to something better. Tolerances should enable compliance—don’t spec at the limit! Ensure that all accessible routes have temporary pedestrian facilities/detours in place in accordance with both MUTCD and PROWAG.

Finally, there needs to be a monitoring process in place. It’s a living document, so things will change. Use the Transition Plan in annual planning cycle. Establish your baseline from the initial inventory and update it regularly (annually recommended). Then develop a tracking system to monitor progress.

Step 5 − Developing Self Evaluation and Transition Plan

Once in place, the ADA Transition Plan is a very valuable tool, pulling together valuable information about the agency. It offers a great deal of protection against fines and penalties from the federal agencies and creates a positive environment for the community.

This step requires taking all of the data collected from walking each and every sidewalk and curb ramp, assessing every facility and park, reading through all of the ordinances, policies, procedures, Boards and Commissions, job descriptions, program descriptions as well as everything the entity has completed over the past 25 years and pull it all together into a single document. www.apwa.net

Q

“I have been asked to participate in a ‘crowd funding’ project. As a city employee, I didn’t know cities could fund their projects in this manner. Maybe I don’t really understand the term. Can you help?”

A

“Crowdfunding” has been around for a while but not often for local

government projects until recently. The definition is “asking a crowd of people to donate a defined amount of money for a specific cause or project.” You may have seen things posted on Facebook or Twitter where a family member or friend is asking for people to help pay for medical treatment or such. They usually indicate they are helping to raise a specific amount of money, say, for kidney transplant expenses. Crowdfunding is not limited

Q

“For several years our recycling rate has been pretty stagnant at about 32 percent. We continue to stress recycling and send out reminders on our utility bills from time to time but nothing seems to change. Have we reached our maximum level of collection? Seems like there should be something else we could do to help us to continue to reduce landfill fees and be better stewards of our environment.”
