BESSEMER – The final touches on the current water-sewer project are to begin this week. Engineers from C2AE updated the council both on current and upcoming projects which relates to the US-2 reconstruction. On the current project work will be completed on Tamarack Street, with the final leg of the project to be on Spring Street. Paving and remediation of any damage done over the winter because the original project deadline was missed are still to be completed in several locations. Darren Pionk is coordinator for the 2021 project and he told council members last night about work now being undertaken. He says background mapping should be complete in 4 to 6 weeks and a soil boring map will be set by early summer. The firm will then seek proposals to complete the work, critical to understanding what soil conditions will be dealt with when the streets are laid open to install new water and sewer lines. In other business the council held a second hearing on an ordinance prohibiting establishment of recreational marijuana sales establishments in Bessemer. The ordinance was approved on a 4-0 vote.
