Placeholder Image

RIPON – Construction is underway to make the Mistlin Sports Complex one of the premier facilities in the area.

The complex will soon feature an additional four new softball fields around the signature water tower, with restrooms and concession facilities also in the plans.

The first phase of the work will include the underground utilities and earth work. It’s here that City of Ripon will need Neil O. Anderson to provide the geotechnical services.

Estimated cost is $15,000.

Elected leaders are expected to approve the proposal of Neil O. Anderson and Associates at Tuesday’s meeting at the Ripon City Hall Council Chambers, 259 North Wilma Ave. The open session begins at 7 p.m.

NOA provides a wide range of engineering services. Included are geotechnical engineering, foundation and structural engineering, geophysical exploration, and environmental and geosciences, to name a few.

In other agenda items:

• Council members could give the OK for Officer Gordon West to adopt police K-9 Topper, who is scheduled to be retired due to age and expiring certification. West will be responsible for all associated adoption fees.

• They’re scheduled to hear a proclamation by the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County to announce October as Domestic Violence Awareness month.

• Elected officials can authorize the sale of excess dirt from Mistlin Sports Park to Reeves Sand and Gravel, Inc.

• A public hearing by the San Joaquin Council of Government is planned to consider whether there were unmet transit needs within the City of Ripon.
