The Rocky Mount City Council is set to discuss signage for the Event Center among other topics Monday evening.

The council will consider a municipal agreement with the state Department of Transportation for the design, fabrication and installation of directional signs for the Rocky Mount Event Center on U.S. 64 at Atlantic Avenue. The city’s cost  is estimated at $7,500.

City staff has recommended approval of the agreement.

The city will reimburse the state 100 percent of the actual cost of the work performed by the DOT, including administrative costs, associated with the installation or replacement of the signs.

During the life of the signs, the city will be solely responsible for all maintenance and replacement costs associated with the signs due to damage, deterioration or loss at no expense or liability to state.

The council will also consider a municipal agreement with the DOT for construction of a new sidewalk along sections of West Raleigh Boulevard and South Winstead Avenue with a total estimated cost of $860,000. The city is to be reimbursed 80 percent of the total estimated cost.

The council is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. in the George W. Dudley City Council Chamber of the Frederick E. Turnage Municipal Building. The council generally holds a workshop at 5 p.m. prior to first regular monthly meeting.
