CARBON CLIFF — Heavy rain is delaying work on the Green Street Phase II project, trustees learned at Tuesday's meeting.

Ongoing rain means there has been minimal work resurfacing on 4th Street, Dennhardt Avenue and Dennhardt Alley with porous material that will allow the rain to soak through, rather than run off.

However, pipe work from Dennhardt Alley to 4th Street has been completed and some fencing has been removed.

Within the next week, crews hope to pour new sidewalks and relocate hydrants.

In other news, the board learned Mediacom is raising its station surcharge from $29.95 to $32.40 and Family Cable is rising from $70.95 to $75.40, effective about May 1.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
