Assessments for the proposed street and infrastructure improvement project along 3rd Ave. S.W. may be less than first thought.

Construction bids for the project were received May 9, and the low bid came in at significantly less than the engineer’s estimate. According to a report by City Engineer Jade Berube, assessment figures for the 3rd Ave. project will be down by about 5-10 percent.
