Measure paves way for more road work


A measure passed at Thursday morning’s city Board of Estimate and Contract meeting, paved the way for more street improvements in the city.

The city will contract with Frankfort-based Central Paving Inc. for improvements at the intersection of North George Street and West Liberty Street for an amount not to exceed $319,303, according to documents.

The scope of work includes drainage work, audible pedestrian signals, new curbing and pavement markers.

In other city business, during a brief Wednesday night common council meeting, city officials noted that plans are being discussed to potentially allow city government meetings to be conducted at city hall (with the option for city officials to possibly attend in person or by web conference).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 198 N. Washington St. city hall has been closed to the public and common council meetings have been conducted remotely via a web conference, with the public listening in by an audio live stream.

More details will be available at the next common council meeting, scheduled for July 22.
