Plum City's main street reconstruction done

PLUM CITY -- After three months, life has returned to normal in Plum City.

That's because the main street reconstruction project, which has included a new sewer system, is complete.

It was announced during the village board meeting early last week two inches of blacktop were recently put down, the last step in the process. An additional two inches will be done in the spring.

In other main street activity, the new street lights aren't expected until sometime in December and the new shelter at Spring Pond Park should be done sometime this week.

The board also heard Xcel Energy will donate $2,500 because enough residents in the village signed up for the Energy Residential Audit. The donation will go toward the garden club for redoing the flower beds.

The board also approved a contract for 2008 with Village Assessor/Building Inspector Galen Seipel at the same rate.

Two village trustees, Peggy and Kent Gilles, are up for reelection in the spring.

The next village board meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 3.
