EAST MOLINE -- The city council has approved a $77,000 project designed to upgrade 6th Street Court.|
The project will include resurfacing on 6th Street Court north of 28th Avenue, according to a report provided to the council. The project cost is about $22,000 more than what the city allotted for it, but the aldermen have approved cost cutting measures.
That will save about $10,000, said Tim Kammler, city director of engineering. The remainder of the extra cost will be covered from reserves.
The vote, at Monday's regular meeting, was unanimous with Ald. Helen Heiland, 1st Ward, and Ald. Gary Westbrook, 7th Ward, not present. Mayor John Thodos was also not present, so the aldermen chose Ald. Bob Cheffer, 6th Ward, to lead the meeting. Ald. Heiland is the mayor pro tem and normally fulfills that role.
Acting as the committee of the whole, the aldermen also tentatively approved the purchase of a $56,057.60 dump truck and plow to replace an older dump truck that is failing, according to the report provided to council.
The purchase must still be heard in a council meeting for final action.
