At Monday night’s Taylorville City Council Meeting, Alderman Earl Walters had a motion on the floor to award a bid for the Spresser Street Overlay Construction Project, which is a project that is a continuation of ongoing road work along Spresser. This part of the project will install sewers and eventually asphalting on Spresser Street between West Avenue and Cheney Street. Alderman Walters told Regional Radio News the specifics of the project.

The bid for the asphalting portion of the project came in right around the $60,000 mark and Alderman Walters was very surprised at how low the bid actually was.
