Chatfield goes forward with 2013 street improvements


Fri, Feb 1st, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Government

Superintendent of City Services Tony Lammers at the city council’s January 28 meeting reviewed the proposed street improvements for 2013. The project will include milling and overlaying Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Streets between Twiford Street and Fillmore Street.

Lammers said there will be a lot of curb and gutter work where there is deterioration or settling of the curb, a considerable amount of sidewalk to be replaced, and a few catch basins will be repaired. American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant curb ramps will be installed.

The total project cost is expected to be $170,793.10.

Ten repairs of the sewer collection system will also be made this year that have been determined to be of the highest priority.

The council approved the city engineer’s proposal provided by David Morrill, McGhie and Betts, Inc., and authorized the creation of plans and specifications for the projects.
