Pezoldt says the project is at the top of the City’s six year transportation priority plan. It will include a total rebuild of the street to include sidewalks, gutters, new sewer lines and street lights. 90 percent of the $2 million price tag will be paid for with grant funds.

The regular session begins at 6:30 p.m. in city council chambers.
