Engineering Services for Rotary Park to be Considered

WGIL Newsroom . Local News 159

galesburgRotary Park in Galesburg is taking another step toward renovation during tonight’s Galesburg City Council meeting.

It was recently learned that grant funds were allocated to the City of Galesburg for updating the park, including for new equipment and landscaping.  Aldermen will consider a plan submitted by an architectural firm out of Peoria that will cost nearly $85,000.

The firm will not only be responsible for design development, but will also do construction documents and the design’s implementation.

The recommended design company was selected after a competitive bidding process according to City documents.

Maurer-Stutz, which is the architectural firm, will be partnering with a landscaping and plumbing company in the project.

Because the project is grant funded, there will be almost no impact to the City of Galesburg.

Tonight’s meeting begins at 6:25 at Galesburg City Hall.
