Two large projects planned for the city could claim around a third of the city’s American Rescue Plan funds.
That’s if the City Council approves the spending during its next meeting.
As of now, plans have been outlined to spend over $3-and-a-half million on a water and sewer project near Benham Avenue. In addition to the $3-million on a similar project on Lexington Avenue.
According to the Elkhart Truth, if the spending is approved the city will have agreed to spend $9-million of its $19-million in funds on water, sewer and street upgrades.
Already nearly $2-and-a-half-million worth of improvements have been approved.
