Today construction will begin on Mulberry Street for the Sewer Separation Project. This 100% federally funded project was made possible through an intergovernmental partnership between Village Council and the Knox County Commissioners. The total estimated cost of construction, design and engineering is approximately $675,000 and we plan on completing this project easily by the end of December.
The High Street Water Tower Project is well underway and will be completed with fabrication, sand-blasting and painting by winter. This project was also completely federally funded and was also made possible by partnering with the Knox County Commissioners. The Commissioners generously shared their American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds with the Village in an effort to enable us to complete these two essential (but not necessarily projects.)
Mayor and Council would like to thank the community for its patience during this construction.
