Streator council finalizes Barlow Addition sewer project

'Every home down there now has reliable sanitary sewer service'

Using grants of $450,000 and $537,000 along with $202,965 from its coffers, the city of Streator installed sanitary and storm drains to stem issues in the Barlow Addition.

The Streator City Council conducted a brief special council meeting Tuesday to hear from City Engineer Jeremy Palm about the project.

"The project was done mostly last year but a requirement of the grant funding from the (Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity) is that we have a final public hearing," Palm said.

The project concerned a plot of land on the eastern portion of 12th Street toward Saratoga Lane that was dealing with flooding problems related to sewer issues.

"Every home down there now has reliable sanitary sewer service," Palm said. "The majority of the homes down there were seeing back-up discharge of the mine. We eliminated the discharge into homes and into the neighborhood streets."

During its meeting, the City Council also finalized the sale of 803 E. Hickory St. to Ryan and Ellen Senko after tabling the sale during the last City Council meeting.

The City Council's Committee of the Whole meeting is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15.
