Water main construction begins July 17. The planned capital improvements involve replacing aging, breakage prone water mains with large diameter, ductile iron mains. Main replacements will occur in the roadway. Residents can expect parking restrictions and limited driveway access as the contractor backfills trenches. Residents directly affected by the planned construction will receive an informational letter via mail. Look for updates on the City’s website, social media, and through press releases.
Public Works has also scheduled an informational meeting for all residents at the City’s Water Division located at 1216 Market St. on Wednesday July 5, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. Staff will discuss project details and answer questions. If you cannot attend or have questions, please contact Utility Superintendent Bryan Faivre at 815-748-2050 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
