Marseilles City Council awards contract for Fillebrowne St. improvement

The Marseilles City Council is approving a $946,000 contract with Advanced Asphalt for improving Fillebrowne St. Mayor Jim Hollenbeck says it’s taken about five years to prepare for the work of widening and adding curb and gutter.

Putting sidewalks there will add $50,000 to the cost. City Engineer Mike Etscheid says the bid is $20,000 over the engineer’s estimate. Hollenbeck says obtaining the rights of way and getting permits are what took so long.
