The Glidden City Council is moving forward with plans to tear out and replace a portion of West 6th Street later this year. At their meeting Monday night, the council voted to direct staff to contact engineering firms who may be interested in overseeing the project. According to Administrator, Brooke Peterson, approximately two blocks of pavement have deteriorated to the point that it needs to be replaced entirely, rather than simply resurfaced. Nearly $111,000 has been set aside in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 budget for the project, but a more accurate estimate will be available after an engineering firm has been selected. A schedule has not been established yet, but work is expected to begin shortly after the current fiscal year ends on June 30.
