The Washington City Council and the Washington School District have agreed to partner up on a project, contingent upon a grant.

At Tuesday’s city council meeting, Washington superintendent Jeff Dicks explained the school district is looking to pave the parking lot at Case Field, which is currently gravel and partially owned by the city. He said the aim is to improve lighting, better organize vehicles with painted parking spots, and increase accessibility for those who are wheel chair bound. City Administrator Brent Hinson said he’d reach out to Alliant Energy to look at increasing the number of city lights in the lot. The total project cost is estimated at $168,000, and the council approved a $10,000 contribution to the work. The work is contingent upon a Washington County Riverboat Foundation grant being awarded to the project.
