At its regular meeting on Monday, September 13 (delayed to September 6 due to Labor Day), Elk Point City Council heard from several angry residents.
Cristy Harkness and Paula Wilson live on Douglas Street. They are unhappy with the condition of their boulevards after Slowey Construction rebuilt the street this summer. The block they live on is expected to be planted later this fall, but for now it’s just dirt.
Due to their concerns, the Board has delayed signing the Substantial Completion and Notice of Acceptance. They also deposited the final payment of $ 119,998.02 to Slowey for the completed work, but approved a change order of $ 5,241.95 for the landscape rock at Mac’s Auto Body in lieu of concreting its boulevard.
There were several items on the agenda regarding the new Thermo Bond building behind HomeTowne Inn and A-1 Quick Stop. The first was to accept the offer of $ 232,298 from Mark Albenesius, Inc. for the Corydon Drive water and sewer expansion project. The second was a memorandum of understanding between the city and ThermoBond stating that the city will install 500 feet of water and sewer lines, a fire hydrant and manhole, and ancillary services for the ThermoBond building. .
The council proceeded to the second reading and approved the ordinance n ° 412 on the annual appropriations. Factory tax increased from 0.007673 to 0.007515. The full budget will be released next week.
