The North Water Tower repainting project is moving right along!
The Contractor has completed the sandblasting and is now priming the tank. Next will be the final coat of paint, including painting the City’s logo on the tower.
The City was awarded a low-interest loan and a 75% forgiveness grant, amounting to a savings of $265,500, from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to complete this project.
Depending on the weather, the project should be completed in about 3 weeks.
