The Burns Harbor
Town Council is going out for bid on its 2018 paving projects, after
receiving word of funding to pave Wall Street at its meeting last week.
Council Member and
Redevelopment Commission President Marcus Rogala announced that the RDC will
be footing the bill for the $63,000 paving project on Wall Street. Rogala
secured the funding at the RDC meeting earlier that evening.
The council will
also go out for bids for paving on North Boo Road, Lively Lane, and Chippewa
Trail, to be funded by the 2017/18 Community Crossing grant, awarded by the
State of Indiana, with bids to be opened on March 8.
