NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING 2018–19 LOUISIANA COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT APPLICATION CITY OF HAMMOND, LOUISIANA The City of Hammond will hold a public hearing at 5:00 p.m. Monday, October 23, 2017, to provide citizens an opportunity to review and comment on the City's proposed 2018–19 Louisiana Community Development Block Grant (LCDBG) application, which the City intends to submit to the Louisiana Office of Community Development Friday, October 27, 2017. The hearing will be held in the Hammond City Council Chambers, 312 East Charles Street, Hammond, Louisiana (70401-3324). The application will also be available for review and comment between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Friday, October 20, through Thursday, October 22, 2017, in the Grants Department, 310 East Charles Street, Hammond, Louisiana (70401-3424). Special accommodations will be made for persons with disabilities and for non-English-speaking persons who wish review and/or comment on the application provided the City receives a request for such accommodations no less than three (3) days prior. Requests should be made to Charles Borchers IV, Grants Manager, at City of Hammond, P.O. Box 2788, Hammond, Louisiana 70404-2788, borchers_cw@hammond.org, or 985-277-5647. Citizens—particularly citizens of low and moderate income and/or who live in low-income, slum, and/or blighted areas—are encouraged to review and comment on the application. Through its proposed "Southwest Hammond Sewer System Rehabilitation Project," the City will replace aged leaking/failing sanitary sewer collection lines and manholes within an area roughly bound by West Thomas Street (US 190) to the north, Mooney Avenue to the east, Palmetto Road to the south, and South Morrison Boulevard (US 51) to the west that is predominantly (96%) low to moderate income with a population of approximately 1,120 people. The United States Census Bureau identifies the area as Census Block Group 3 of Census Tract 9543. Combined with other efforts, such as improvements to the City's South Wastewater Treatment Plant and corrective work in other parts of the city to reduce/eliminate infiltration/inflow (I/I) into the City's sewer system, the project will further reduce I/I and improve the system's capacities to cope with I/I when it occurs (e.g. during severe rain/flooding) and to process sewage. The project is anticipated to cost $765,000, including $675,000 in construction, $52,550 in engineering, $35,475 in resident project representation/inspection, and $1,975 in testing and quality control costs. The City is requesting $675,000 in LCDBG funding to cover the cost of construction and is prepared to match this funding with $90,000 to cover non-construction costs. The City's Grants Department will provide grant administration—saving the City an estimated $20,000 in consultant fees. OCTOBER 20, 2017 17-10-106
