At the regular meeting of the Village of Biggsville on October 3rd, Scott Kammerman and Andrew Youngquist reported on the IDOT Highway 34 construction and what changes that means for the water project.
It was suggested to place the pipe when the construction for the new Highway 34 is being done and then when the water line is laid all that will need to be done is to place the line in the pipe and the water pipe on the south side of Highway 34 going towards Hill Crest Subdivision will need to be relocated at the cost of IDOT since the water lines are already in place.
Scott Kammerman reported that bids for the water project could be done as soon as the end of the year.
