MUSCATINE, Iowa – The City of Muscatine will host a public meeting on Phase V of the West Hill Area Sanitary and Storm Sewer Separation Project (WHSSP) from 5-6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 21, 2021. An in-person meeting and a virtual meeting will be offered.
The main focus of the meeting is to introduce the contractor, present a brief overview of the project, provide a tentative schedule, and answer any questions from residents who live in the area affected by the construction. The in-person meeting will be held in the lower level conference room at Muscatine City Hall. However, attendance will be limited and those attending will be required to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines.
A virtual meeting will be offered and will be monitored so those logging into the virtual session will be able to ask questions by using the chat feature. Details of joining the virtual meeting are listed below.
Hagerty Earthworks, Inc., was awarded the $6.03 million contract for Phase V of the WHSSP during the April 1 City Council meeting. This phase includes replacing sewers on West 8th Street from Broadway to Lucas, on Climer Street from West 8th Street to Lucas, Logan Street from Lucas to Climer, Lucas Street from 912 Lucas to Fletcher Avenue, and through the ravine between Climer and Lucas.
The first year of the two-year project will focus on West 8th Street and Climer Street.
A letter was sent to residents in the planned construction area earlier this month. If you live in the area affected by the project and did not receive a letter, please contact City Engineer Pat Lynch at (563) 263-8933.
The public meeting will be an opportunity for the public to ask questions or to inform City staff of any special situations and/or requests for accommodations that need to be reviewed and approved, if possible, by the contractor and the City. The meeting is not intended for voicing opposition to the project, but legitimate concerns will be addressed.
If you are unable to attend the meeting in person or virtually, but would like to inquire about making a request for accommodations, please contact Lynch in the next two weeks to begin the process of reviewing the request. All accommodation requests will be impartially reviewed by the City and the contractor and, if possible, implemented as needed.
