Some parking spaces and sidewalks are being replaced by the Howell Carnegie District Library.

The work is weather dependent, but is expected to get underway this coming week and involves repaving and replacing angled off-street parking and sidewalk on Chestnut Street.

City Manager Shea Charles explained that the library underwent an expansion back in the 1980’s and agreed to put in the angled parking. He says the pavement has been in place since that time but is now in need of replacement, along with some sidewalks along there. As part of the City’s ongoing street project, Charles says they talked with that contractor, who agreed to extend the favorable pricing to the library project.

The Howell City Council earlier approved amending the 2017 Street Program contract to do the work, and the library will reimburse the City for all expenses. (JM)
