The Springfield City Council during their monthly meeting the evening of June 16 approved a partial pay estimate of $151,483 for the first phase of project. The pay application includes tree and bituminous removal on Van Dusen Street, and bituminous overlays on Cass and O’Connell Avenues.

Thirty-eight trees were removed along Van Dusen Street for the project.  The Council discussed a voluntary treeplanting program, and voted to participate in a tree replacement program to be done this fall. 

The Council accepted MR Paving’s quotation of $3,120 to patch 960 Square Feet (24 ft. x 40 ft.) on Spring Avenue near Central Street.  MR Paving had the low quote of two companies. 

The Council also approved sidewalk improvements on Spring Avenue.
