After funding confirmation of Monona’s $500,000 community development block grant (CDBG) for the city’s phase II sanitary sewer project took longer than anticipated, the city council decided Aug. 17 to push back the project’s construction timeline.
The project completion deadline was originally planned for July 1, 2016, explained engineer Marc Ruden, with IIW, who has worked with the city throughout the process. Now, noted Ruden, the expected completion of the project will be Nov. 1, 2016.
“Now, it gives us nearly the entire construction season to get it done,” Ruden said, noting that the change was approved by the Department of Natural Resources before the council moved forward with the extension.
