Residents living along Ruth Wilcox Boulevard and Koehmstedt Street in Park City will soon have newly paved streets in front of their homes.
The City Council awarded a $111,093 contract with Peter Baker & Son to resurface both streets that had been deteriorating in recent years.
The major source of funding will come from a $100,000 federal Community Development Block Grant that the city recently received. The city will also contribute $11,093 from its Motor Fuel Tax Fund.
City engineer Ken Magnus said the project involves removal of existing pavement replaced by a new layer of asphalt on both streets between Old Plank Road and Hood Avenue.
Defective sidewalks along the two streets will also be removed and replaced, Magnus said.
“Construction on the project is expected to begin shortly, and will be completed by early November,” Magnus said.
In other action, the community’s Halloween Trick or Treat date will be Sunday, Oct. 27, from 2-4 p.m.
These are the same hours planned by neighboring Waukegan.
