Sheldon Council to Discuss Streetscape Project

Date posted - December 4, 2012

Sheldon, Iowa — The proposed Downtown Infrastructure project will be the main item on the agenda for the Sheldon City Council meeting Wednesday.

Mc Clure Engineering has projected the cost to be 1.5 million dollars with the possibility of assessing property owners for curb and gutter work which would reduce the city’s cost by about 270 thousand dollars.

The engineering firm has prepared a detailed summary of the possible assessment costs for each property involved.  After discussion of the Mc Clure report, the council will have to decide if they want to take the next  step.  That would be to enter into an engineering agreement with McClure for the design stage of the project.

If the council does decide to proceed, there would be public hearings on the plans and proposed assessments before the City would proceed to the bidding stage.

Wednesday’s City Council meeting begins at 4:30 in the upper level of the Sheldon Community Services Center.
