NORWICH – City officials discussed projected costs and budgeted funds for street rehabilitation projects planned in the coming season at a special meeting of the Public Works and Public Safety Committee Tuesday.
At last week’s meeting of the Finance and Personnel Committee, Public Works Superintendent Carl Ivarson said the estimated cost for planned projects was $111,541. The council budgeted $121,083. Ivarson explained this week that an additional $5,000 would be used to repair approximately 500 feet of Francis Avenue.
Although there is additional money budgeted, Ivarson told the committee that spending the total amount “could be a problem for the council in the future.”
