The city council previously approved $75k for the Safe Routes to Schools sidewalk project for Hobbs and King Middle Schools. Tuesday, February 13 the council approved another $25K to be added to the project for right of way acquisition.
The grant money was applied for by the city and county as a joint program. The city is working with the county on the project and paying for right of way acquisitions within city limits. There are 8 easements to be acquired.
Of the $100k, $79,519 is contractor cost. The remaining money is earmarked for easement purchases.
First actions were taken on this project by the council in August, 2016.
