At the Pound Village Board meeting on Monday, Aug. 6, Public Works Director Kevin Schutte reported that contractor Tenor Corp., was to start working on Walker Street on Monday, Aug. 13. Walker Street is being done with Local Road Improvement Project funding and work was supposed to have started on Tuesday, July 10. Schutte said Tenor Corp. had been informed a fine of $500 per day would be charged for the late start, and he was subsequently contacted by Tenor regarding his schedule on another job and the promise that the Walker Street work would start on Aug. 13.
In regard to the Main Street/County Q project, Schutte told the board the surveying and markers were completed for the mapping of utilities for the street plan for this street to be done with utility work to be done at the same time.
Schutte reported he had finished the lights at the park ball field, fixed a stop sign at Risner Street, fixed the two park cameras for clarity, repaired the garbage truck hydraulic switch and had the skid steer quick detached fixed. He installed new tires on the sweeper, hauled out chips and grass clippings, and cleaned the salter and stored it.
