The City of Urbana seeks proposals to purchase parking citation software, equipment and a management system. The proposal should include all applicable hosting, subscription, maintenance and/or service contract fees. This procurement is open to all businesses actively engaged in the development and delivery of parking software and related items as specified in the RFP.

The City of Urbana rents parking spaces and utilizes parking meters to generate revenues that are used to maintain and construct parking facilities. Revenues from these parking services are allocated to the Motor Vehicle Parking System Fund, where the expenses of maintaining parking services are reported. Public parking facilities are provided as an enterprise activity. The amount expected to be raised in FY 17/18 is $1.46 million. Approximately 50% of the amount is collected from spaces and meters in the University campus area. The current meter rate on campus is $1.00 per hour. The City maintains over 1,400 metered spaces and over 250 parking rental spaces on-street and in municipal lots.

Local Officials Urge the Public to Take Extra Precautions to Stay Safe in the Heat

Champaign-Urbana Public Health District and Champaign County Emergency Management Agency Urge the Public to Take Extra Precautions to Stay Safe in the Heat

The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) and the Champaign County Emergency Management Agency (CCEMA) urge everyone to watch for the symptoms of heat-related illness, and to take precautions to keep their families and communities safe.

Heat-related illness can take many forms ranging from a mild case of heat exhaustion to a more serious and life-threatening case of heat stroke. Heat-related illnesses occur when the body becomes unable to control its temperature. The body’s temperature rises rapidly and the body looses its ability to perspire and cool down. Rising to temperatures of 106 degrees or higher within 10 to 15 minutes can result in death or permanent disability if emergency treatment is not provided.

Phone Service Restored at Urbana City Building; Other Outages Remain As AT&T Works To Restore Service

Date: 
July 17, 2017 - 8:00pm to July 21, 2017 - 5:00pm

Phone CablesTelephone service to the Urbana City Building was fully restored about 9:45 a.m. today (July 18), as AT&T crews worked around the clock to splice together thousands of copper lines that were accidentally severed Friday afternoon by a city contractor.

The accident has left a significant number of land-line customers in Urbana without service and full restoration of service might take as long as Friday. AT&T has had crews of eight working on splicing together the copper lines, working 24 hours a day, since this weekend.

Five cables, each containing 2,400 pairs of lines, were damaged in the accident, two of them completely severed.

The incident occurred early Friday afternoon, when a city contractor was installing a new street light and damaged a large AT&T phone duct that had multiple cables in it, according to John Collins, Public Works operation manager.
