I am sorry to pass along the bad news that once again, for the 3rd year in a row, this project has been put off until next year.
The plans were all set, we had a great community meeting in Sept., & the need is urgent. But sometimes the wheels of City government grind agonizingly slowly.
The issues apparently were procedural & administrative, involving state funding & getting everything lined up.
Part of the reason for 3 years of delays is that the City has had 4 Directors of Engineering just in the 4 years that I have been Ward 5 Alderman.
The current City Engineer, Rich Raiche, is doing a terrific job of managing the enormous amount of street work going on in the City. I am confident that he will get this important project done next year.
