Glencoe City Council considers next round of improvements

Justin Black of Short Elliott Hendrickson, Inc., (SEH) presented the feasibility report for the proposed 2017 Baxter Avenue street reconstruction project to the Glencoe City Council Monday night.
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 Elliott to Ford 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.
Included in the project is a raw water line for Seneca, which will be assessed 100 percent to the company.
The total estimated cost of the project is $5.575 million, which includes $3.613 million for street improvements, $559,000 for sanitary sewer improvements, $486,000 for storm sewer improvements, and $917,000 water main improvements.
The project will be financed through the general tax levy, sanitary and water utility funds (76.7 percent), and neighborhood assessments (23.3 percent).
The percentage of the project is slightly higher than the state’s requirements due to the 100 percent assessment to Seneca Foods.
A public hearing on the project is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 7:30 p.m.
The project is scheduled to be mostly completed by October 2017.
