The kitchen area in Hawkins Hall has three separate kitchen spaces.

“This scope of this project includes creating access to the kitchen from the exterior, the addition of an ADA bathroom, electrical service upgrades and plumbing upgrades,” Assistant Public Works Director Felix Floyd wrote in a memo. “This project will create a warming kitchen for service to the dining hall and the other two kitchen spaces will be used as a teaching and catering kitchen, leased and managed by a non-profit tenant.”

In other business, the city commission will consider a few other purchases and contracts, including:

– Purchasing a Case 580SN Loader/Backhoe for $111,890 from GJ&L, Inc. and authorizing the financing through the Georgia Municipal Association.

– Purchasing a pre-owned 2013 Tymco 600 Regenerative Air Street Sweeper for $114,900 from Sinclair Equipment Finance, LLC. and executing a supplemental lease for the financing through the Georgia Municipal Association direct lease financing program.

– Awarding a contract to Johnson Controls in the amount of $28,180.36 and approving a project budget of $30,000 for security camera upgrades at the Decatur Police Department.

The city commission will also consider approving an ordinance levying the City Schools of Decatur’s millage rate of 20.3 mills.
