The sewer project bids were opened approximately a month ago and those bids came in over budget, and the monthly costs to the residents were not feasible. So instead of scraping the entire project, the board voted to do a redesign of the system to try to bring the costs down so that we can have a quality system, that meets USDA & EPA guidelines, and will keep things affordable for the residents.
We understand this is very frustrating for everyone, but the Village Board wants to make sure that this project will be affordable for the residents, and we apologize for the time that it has taken to get to this point and for the lack of communication.
So as of right now, the redesign is in the works and should being going out to bid in the near future. We will keep everyone posted via our website on the status of the project as they become available.
