Hot Off the Press!
I attended this mornings New Albany Board of Works meeting and the highlights are as follows.
The administration has placed Brad Kessings (spelling of last name ???) onsite at the water treatment plant to "manage" the contractractual obligations (my take is to be the Mayors watch dog) of EMC as they pertain to our waste water & storm water systems.
As of August 1st Traffic will no longer be able to turn South on Scribner from Elm Street going to Main Street. This is to be a 30 day test period at the end of which there are proposed meetings to obtain comment from city officials and the public as well to acertain if the clousure should remain permanent.
The other big news is that "WE ARE GOING TO PAVE SOME STREETS!" Beginning July 7th, milling & paving is to begin on State Street at Elm and continue on to Union Street. It stops there for now as there is underground utility work scheduled for later in the year from Union on towards I 265.
Following that Mount Tabot is to be repaved from Charlestown Road to Grantline Road in the same fashion.
Then when Mt. Tabor is completed, McDonald Lane is to receive a face lift from Charlestown Road to Grantline.
The monies to do these first three streets are (as per Deputy Mayor Carl Malysz) in hand in the form of LRS Funds which is just shy of $300K.
Can you smell the hot asphalt yet?
