The project involves the installation of approximately 2,200 linear feet of stormwater pipe and will include curb and gutter, sidewalk, driveway and pavement replacements as well as utility relocations.
The project is expected to cost $825,000, funded through the $1/4-cent Capital Improvement Sales Tax and Level Property Tax. Project completion is anticipated in the fall.
