|Galesburg Aldermen to Take Up Proposed Logistics Park Water Upgrade
|The City of Galesburg is moving a step forward in upgrading its water system so that it could serve Logistics Park Galesburg if and when a tenant is ever found, but it's one city officials say would also provide other benefits.
Aldermen Monday night, as part of a consent agenda that may or may not garner discussion, will vote on a resolution authorizing the funding of a new water main that will run from the intersection of Knox Street and Wisconsin Avenue, to the eastern entrance of the Logistics Park at Grand Avenue.
The city says the resolution is needed so that if approved, $350,000 in Community Development Assistance Program grant funds could possibly be made available for the project pending approval.
The remaining $150,000 for the $500,000 upgrade would be fronted by the city, which officials say would also be beneficial for firefighting in that section of the city.
Also on the council's consent agenda is approval of an amendment to an agreement that increases the cost of a proposed parking lot expansion and bus loading area at the Galesburg Amtrak station.
City officials say the cost could be up to $20,000 over the $60,000 already budgeted, but that the extra money will be provided by the state. 80-percent of the project's costs are coming from federal dollars, while the remaining 20-percent is coming from the state.
The Galesburg City Council meets at 7:30 p-m in open session, following an hour-long closed-door session at City Hall. You can view the full agenda at www.ci.galesburg.il.us/mayorcouncil/2009/060109/060109.htm.
