City Engineer Jason Wenger updated the Council on the Main Street East Construction Project.
Most of the work has been completed but there are still several punch list items that need to be
done. The concrete next to some of the pavers needs to be redone because it is too high. The
construction company wants to do it this fall but after discussion the Council will ask that it be
done in the spring. The temperatures affect the asphalt and it is too cold now. The Council
approved paying half the retainage when the punch list is completed and the balance in the
spring when the concrete is completed to the city’s satisfaction.
