Temporary repairs have been made on Laurel St, according to Eagle Point City Administrator Dave Hussell. At the Jan. 22 city council meeting, two residents complained about the condition of Laurel St. which had been used over a year ago as a demonstration model by a firm trying to sell equipment to the city. The city did not purchase the equipment nor did the firm repair the damage. At the Jan. 22 meeting, Hussell and Public Works Director Robert Miller promised the residents work would be done on the street as soon as the weather permitted. While making the repairs, two water leaks were discovered. One was on the city side, which was repaired and the other was on the side of a residence, which the resident was having repaired.
    
The public hearing on Hannon Road waterline reimbursement agreement was continued until the next city council meeting.
   
A format for park signs, which had been recommended by the Parks and Recreation Committee,  was approved. The first new sign will be placed in Bob Moore Park. The concrete sign will be five feet wide and four feet high from the base to the top and is seven inches thick.  It will be made of sand colored concrete with a rock veneer base. There is a 10-year guarantee against vandalism and two year warranty for workmanship and materials.
   
The sign will be made and delivered by Outdoor Creations at a cost of $2,850 including delivery.
   
Signage for the five Town Center area street signs was also approved.  There will be a total of 62 signs. The new signs will be 30 in. in length x 14 ½ in. high, as opposed to the current signs which are 24×8. The total contract for signs and brackets is $4,805. The street sign will be black with the area designation at the top in a color which complements the district. Installation will be handled by city public works.
   
Two more murals were put in place at Harnish Wayside last week.
