The Antigo Common Council advanced plans for a series of summer utility projects Wednesday.
At a quiet April meeting, aldermen awarded the bid for water and sewer main construction on Willard and Badger avenues and Washington Street to Jake’s Excavating and Landscaping LLC. of Ironwood, Mich. The company will be paid $564,659.16.
The work, half of which will be funded through a Community Development Block Grant, is designed to alleviate problems with water flow through the area and to make repairs to a system battered by freeze-ups during last year’s brutal winter. It will include replacement of water main and sanitary and storm sewer pipes in the 600 and 700 block of Willard Avenue, the 600 block of Washington Street and the 500 block of Badger Avenue.
