Set to begin on June 15th with an estimated completion near October, weather permitting, the $670,908 project will be funded through the State Revolving Fund, an OCRA grant, and local matching funds.

The town council approved the pre-construction meeting and signed off on the project, hours of operation, work plans, and other details of the proposed project.

The only other action taken by the town council was the approval of the Oolitic VFW having a roadblock at Hoosier and Main for the regular poppy seed fundraiser.
