Sub-drain added to downtown enhancement

Washington’s downtown enhancement project recently got a little more expensive. City engineer Rob McDonald told councilors they’d need to spend as much as $10,000 on a sub drain. He says the drain is necessary to keep water from accumulating under the pavement and causing damage when it freezes during the winter months. The third ward’s Mike Roth wanted more time to consider approving the expenditure, but didn’t want to hold up the project. He says the downtown enhancement and new library projects are both coming along on schedule and will hopefully be done around the same time.
