Contractor hired for Monks Avenue work

Posted by wlpo on February 9, 2011

Water main breaks have been a problem for people living on Monks Avenue in Peru but hopefully for not much longer.

After a main break in mid January, the fourth in a month’s time, the city council decided it was time to for water main improvements in that area.

Wednesday night they decided to hire J.W. Ossola Construction of Granville for nearly $120,000, the lowest of the bids received.  The project had been estimated to cost $100,000.

Work could begin in two to three weeks.

You’ll be waiter longer to see any road and street repairs.  A stretch of May Road was added to the project Wednesday night.  Because they’re using Motor Fuel Tax money, the plans need IDOT’s approval.  Those will be sent to Springfield next week.  Then the project can be bid out.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
