Addition of AED (Automated External Defibrillator) Unit Layer to geothinQ
The AED (Automated External Defibrillator) unit layer was integrated into our geothinQ platform this week. The layer includes the follow information per AED unit: owner (TLA, TLC, The Village), building name, building location (address), unit location, age group, manufacturer and a picture of the unit. Amber Capps, in conjunction with Thomas & Hutton, are still working out a few kinks with the layer; however, they are anticipated to be resolved within the next week. Thereafter, staff intends to create a map with the unit locations for community access via The Landings Association website.
Senauki Lane Drain Frame and Grate Replacement
In mid-to late February, staff was notified about a drain grate failure on Senauki Lane. Staff inspected the drain and determined that the drain grate was damaged, along with the framed structure around the grate. For safety reasons, in-house staff placed a steel plate over the drain with room for normal drainage to occur on the street. Thereafter, staff took measurements of the frame and structure and placed an order with Knights Precast. Although staff was given an estimated 8-12-week timeframe for completion, Knights Precast has been backlogged due to larger quantity orders and most recently, their foundry has been in-operational. Staff continually called the vendor for updates and researched other vendors to obtain estimated turn-around times for completion; however, Knights Precast informed staff on Wednesday that they were not able to make the grate due to its size and low quantity order. On Friday, Bill Campbell and his team modified the catch basin to a standardized size to allow for the installation of the new grate.
