Background:

A concrete retaining wall with an aluminum fence is along the east side of the parking lot for the Police Building.  The wall has deteriorated and has been patched several times.  The fence is damaged, possibly from being hit by a vehicle.  The City retained a consulting engineer, Powell-CWM, to investigate the location and provide design options for the retaining wall improvements.

Funding for the improvements was previously approved in an operating budget line item for the Public Works Department, Account 5015-5401.
