Silver Lake Council approves demolition specs, orders bids

The Silver Lake City Council on Monday night passed a resolution approving plans and specifications, and agreed to advertise for bids, for the demolition of four adjoining buildings on Main Street.
In the specifications, the demolition work will need to be completed by Dec. 15 with the final grading, fill and seeding to be completed by May 15, 2018. The bids will be opened on Oct. 26. The council will hold a special meeting to award the bids on Thursday, Nov. 2, at 6:30 p.m.
In other business, the council:
• Reviewed landscaping plans for the auditorium. The council agreed the trees and shrubs should be taken out. City Clerk Jon Jerabek will see if the work can be done soon and have a plan for the council to review at the next meeting. As part of the plan, the council looked at flag poles, a paver seating area and discussed the option of an electronic sign. It will continue to research options.
• Passed a resolution to reassess $4,449 to a tax forfeited property on Oliver Street. The city tore down a garage because of blight issues a number of years ago and assessed the costs to the property. The assessment will have to be paid by the new owner once the county sells it.
