Second Avenue Street Reconstruction Project likely to face extensions

Posted

The Stanley City Council held a Citizen Participation Hearing regarding the East Second Avenue Reconstruction for the 2024 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Public Facilities on Monday, May 6 at city hall. Mayor Mike Henke updated the meeting attendees on the status of the CDBG Project with an overview of the activities completed and an update on the remaining activities to be completed. Henke mentioned that sewer laterals and two water laterals were added to be included in the project.
“I know with the project because the rain it’s being slowed down. It’s an ongoing project they still have time left.” He added, “I’m sure there is going to be an extension due to rain dates.”
Henke also reviewed housing needs in the area due to the reconstruction and it was determined that none were needed and there hasn’t been any displacement or relocation.
Henke said, “There’s always been more construction going on. There’s probably still a need for some housing. I would like to see more residential single-family owner occupied. Hopefully in the future we are able to find a way to encourage more of that to happen.”
Henke informed attendees that the project came in under what was projected so it falls under the original grant funds. “It helps us out financially,” Henke stated and then concluded the hearing.
At the council meeting immediately following the hearing, the Council approved the first payment application for the East Second Avenue Reconstruction to Haas Sons, Inc. for $186,328.25.
