Farmer City Hoping to Get New Street Shed Approved This Spring

About a year ago, Farmer City lost its street shed in a fire and the City has anxiously been awaiting getting a new one built.


If the City Council likes the proposal and the cost is right - things could start to move along this spring. City Administrator Sue McLaughlin on the WHOW Morning Show Monday told Regional Radio the cost for it came in much higher than was anticipated and they decided to wait, and rebid at a later date.



McLaughlin points out they plan to find some ways to create more storage space for City equipment and hope to have a break room for City employees.



McLaughlin indicates the cost of the project came in around $600,000 in the most recent bid cycle but she hopes to see it down to around $300,000. Additionally, the City will be fortunate in the fact that insurance will pick up the cost of the facility.
