Poplar Added to Street Repair List for 2008

The bids for the 2008 street repairs have been opened and they came in well below estimates. This means that we will have enough funds to include the alternate street, Poplar (between Gulf Road and 449 Poplar). Council approved the addition of Poplar to the 2008 street repair list.

More good news! There is over $77,000 in additional money available for more street repairs! Use of this money will be discussed at the next Safety/Utilities/Environment Committee meeting, currently scheduled for June 18 at 6:00 p.m.

Hopefully, this money can be used to help repair spots on North Abbe, West River Road, East Avenue and Gulf Road, all of which are rapidly deteriorating.

While repairing this road, the contractor identified problems with the sewer connection which will likely cost an additional $46K to repair. This money will come from the sewer fund and not the street repair fund.
