Monterey expects to bid out later this month a project to repave at least five streets.
Mayor Bill Wiggins said one of those roads will require some prep work in order for the paving to take place.
“We’ve got some preparatory work to do on Old Walton Road, preferably in front of Garland Early’s,” Wiggins said. “We’ve been in contact with TDEC. As you know, that’s a blue-line stream. We were permitted to put a huge culvert in front of Garland’s, but we’re going to need another one. That’s where that road is really breaking off, and we feel pretty optimistic that we’ll be able to do that.”
Monterey will also pave Railroad Avenue, New Avenue, Jackson Avenue, and South Elm Street.
Jerry Warren (consulting engineer) has advised me that we’ll be advertising bids for the paving projects later this month,” Wiggins said. “Jerry is negotiating the permit that will be involved.”
Wiggins said the city will use part of a $1 million capital outlay note to pay for the project.
