City Ready for Bids on First Phase of Main Street Upgrade

September 10, 1997|CATHY WERBLIN

City officials will begin accepting bids for more than $800,000 in Main Street area improvements, including the installation of parking meters in nearby parking lots.

During its meeting Monday night, City Council members agreed to also investigate the cost of renovating public restrooms under the pier and in City Hall and adding crosswalks and trees to Main Street.

The projects were outlined in the city's ongoing efforts to beautify historic Main Street. A complete plan calls for a total of $3.9 million in improvements.

Several Main Street business owners urged council members to approve the proposal, which they said will help stimulate business on the quaint main drag.

"Main Street is eclectic and we all like it," said resident Ron Bennett. "We don't want you to change it, just improve it."

The meters are expected to bring in about $145,000 a year, City Manager Keith Till said.
