Public hearing on Shell Street pavement work is Monday

A public hearing on the city's planned Shell Street pavement improvement project is scheduled for Monday night's Worthington City Council meeting.

Plans have been submitted that account for concrete and bituminous pavement surfaces.

The city share for concrete on the project is now at $377,645.17, which represents 78.44% of the total project cost of $481,420. Assessments receivable for the concrete option are estimated at $103,774.83, or 21.56% of the total cost. For a bituminous surface, meanwhile, the same percentages for city share and assessments receivable, as $321,126.53 of the total project cost of $409,370 would come from the city and $88,243.47 would come from assessments.

Based on a rate determining frontage of 731.7 feet, the estimated assessment rate is $174.91 per foot for concrete and $148.73 per foot for bituminous. A resolution is expected to be voted upon by council members, with four-fifths vote of the council necessary for its passage.

Also tonight, council members are scheduled to consider an agreement for professional services for reconstruction of Second Avenue from 10th Street to 12th Street, along with utility improvements. The need for consulting engineering services is planned as part of the project due to the nature of the project and the current workload scheduled this construction season. The agreement would have Bolton and Menk Inc. provide administrative services for the Second Avenue Reconstruction and Utility in the amount of $120,000.
