Council orders improvements, plans for Baxter Avenue project

The Glencoe City Council passed a resolution ordering improvement and preparation of plans for the Baxter Avenue improvement project slated for 2017.
The project is to include full street and utility reconstruction on Eighth and Ninth  Streets from Armstrong to Chandler avenues, 10th Street from Baxter to Chandler avenues, 11th Street from Armstrong to Chandler avenues, 12th Street from Baxter to Ford avenues,  Baxter Avenue from Seventh to 12th streets, Chandler Avenue from 10th Street to the railroad tracks, and Elliott Avenue from 10th to 12th streets.
It also will include storm sewer replacement on 12th Street from Ford to Greeley avenues, and pavement replacement on Fairway Drive and Fairway Circle and Sixth Street from Baxter to Chandler avenues.
The council held a public hearing after making a change to the project at the Nov. 21 council meeting. The change removed 11th Street from Elliot to Ford avenues, and Elliot Avenue from 11th to 12th streets, and adding 11th Street from Armstrong to Chandler avenues to replace a four-inch water main.
The change reduces the cost of the project nearly $100,000, bringing the total cost to $5.48 million.
Council Member Alan Robeck asked if he and Council Member Kevin Dietz could vote on the project since both own property within the project area.
