UPDATE #2 – LONG ROAD TO RECOVERY

The City has completed its review of repairs needed on major collector streets damaged from the winter storm. The City has contracted with an engineer to provide specifications of work and engineer’s estimate of cost in preparation for bidding the street repair work out.

The City will utilize reserve funds within this current budget year to begin the repairs this year. It is the City’s desire to have repair work beginning early summer 2021.
