In city meetings this week, measures were approved that would continue progress for infrastructure projects and maintenance in the city.
At Thursday morning’s city Board of Estimate a measure was passed allowing the city to contract with Barrett Paving and Materials in Liverpool, for a 2020 cold milling and resurfacing project to the tune of $1,969,842.21.
In Wednesday night Common Council actions, A resolution that would have adopted the Erie Boulevard BOA study as an appendix to the 2004 City of Rome Comprehensive Plan, was tabled until a public hearing could be set on the matter.
The Erie Boulevard Brownfield Opportunity Area is about a 575-acre area along the Erie Canal which aims to cleanup and reignite unused industrial space.
Also during the meeting, through a unanimous vote, council approved a bond resolution that $963,300 would ultimately pay for improvements to the $3.8 million Martin Street sewer project.
Clarifying, City Treasurer David Nolan explained that the amount was not new spending, but the resolution was rather an authorization of spending for a leftover amount for the project.
