Added Cost Approved for Street Project

<p>Mary Alice Reporting:

Council has approved an additional expense for the Sherman Street project in Dennison.

Council member Greg DiDanato explains the construction company came to the Village with a paving recommendation.

“Instead of trying to repave over the old base we just go down and dig it out and then put in a few inches of a base like a compaction down and the increase the blacktop on the road to make it a little thicker.”

He says the cost is $15,000 extra; however, the bids came in under the planned budget so the Village has the additional funding.

DiDanato adds that there shouldn’t be any more extra costs for the on-going project.

An estimated completion is by mid-July.
