Placentia

September 08, 2000|Raul Gallegos, (714) 520-2512

The City Council this week voted to accept as completed the work done at Melrose and Orangethorpe avenues, after the discovery of heavy tree roots required the city to revise its plans for a retaining wall there. The city had originally planned to pay Ranco Corp. $63,760 to replace the sidewalk at the northeast corner, build the wall and put in new landscaping. But after it was determined that the wall could not be built because of the roots, the city revised the project--bringing costs up to $142,000--and had a slope built instead of the wall.
