On or about June 30, 2020, the City intends to apply to the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity for a grant from the Rebuild Illinois program. This program is funded by state funds as included in the 2019 Capital Bill. These funds are to be used for a community development project that will include the following activities: Locust-Colton Phase 2 Elimination Project which is a sewer separation project located mainly on the following streets: Washington, Grove, Mercer, Moore and Warner. The total amount of Rebuild Illinois funds to be requested is $4,504,294.00. The City also proposes to expend $170,000 in non-Rebuild Illinois funds on the project. These non-Rebuild Illinois funds will be derived from the sewer, storm water and water enterprise funds.
Information related to this project will be available for review prior to the public hearing as of June 13, 2020 at www.cityblm.org/rebuildil. Interested residents are invited to provide comments regarding these issues either at the public hearing or by prior written statement. For additional information concerning the proposed project, please contact Jim Karch, 309-434-2385 or write to Jim Karch, 109 E. Olive Street Bloomington, IL 61701.
