Road work underway, costs within budget


Infrastructure work is underway in Rising Sun including Industrial Access Drive, according to city planner Mike Northcutt.

He told city council Thursday that an additional $35,000 in costs have been estimated. However, there is a balance of $59,250 in the Community Grant Fund.

Additional milling costs totaling milling $7500 for other city streets are expected which is within the budget also.

A new round of community matching grants for up to $1 million is underway. Council approved to hire HWC with a $5000 contract as the asset management team for the grant process.

Council approved a proposal by Archie Crouch of Land Consultants to hook in to the city water sewer line during proposed improvements at the Rising Sun Church of Christ.
