It can be tough to balance civic responsibility with the demands of a busy life, so we've summed up what’s up for voting at the next Mesa City Council meeting on Aug. 26. Read on to find out more about the agenda.

A key item is an ordinance that would amend the city code on public nuisances, property maintenance and neighborhood preservation to set who interprets the nuisance code; to define responsible parties, blight, pigeons and recreational vehicles; and to add certain prohibitions on feeding pigeons.

The City Council is also expected to consider renewing the term contract for water and wastewater equipment repairs and maintenance for the Water Resources Department, with DXP Enterprises Inc.; Foster Electric Motor Service Inc.; Hennesy Mechanical Sales LLC; James, Cooke & Hobson Inc.; Layne Christensen; Phoenix Pumps Inc.; Southwest Waterworks Contractors Inc.; and Weber Water Resources LLC; for one year at $800,000 annually.

Other agenda items include:

  • Renewing the term contract for submersible pump-motor units repairs and replacements for the Water Resources and the Parks, Recreation and Community Facilities departments, with Phoenix Pumps Inc.; Laron Inc.; Keller Electrical Industries Inc.; and James, Cooke & Hobson Inc.; for seven months at $830,000.
  • Contracting with Capital Pump & Equipment LLC for emergency pump rental services for the Transportation Department for three years with two years of renewal options, at $100,000 annually.
