The city of Sandwich has joined several other municipalities to be a part of an electrical aggregation program that offers lower rates than ComEd, according to Sandwich Mayor Rick Olson.
He announced at a Sandwich City Council’s Committee-of-the-Whole meeting Aug. 7 that letters would be going out to city residents with details of the agreement.
Director of Public Works/City Engineer Tom Horak reported that summer maintenance work on Sandy Bluff Road and pavement patching on Main Street would begin this past week.
Several new turn lanes will be created with striping on Lions Road and South Main Street to better control traffic near the schools.
New curbs and gutters by the fire station on East Railroad Street have been completed. The driveway entrance will be open to traffic when the concrete reaches its required strength.
Horak said the new water main portion of the Lisbon Street project is operational. The storm sewer work is still underway and ComEd will be changing the poles.
