The Mt. Zion Village Board met on June 20 and approved a bid award for the water tower demolition project and heard a presentation on FY 2021 Financial Statements.
The water demolition project is part of the Capital Improvement Plan. Two bids were received for the project with one coming from Iseler Demolition, Inc. for $69,400 and Shafer Excavating for $334,000. Iseler Demolition, Inc. was awarded the bid.
Once a timeline for the project is established the contractor will notify the Village. Broadway will have to be closed during the demolition for safety reasons. There will be advanced notice for the closure for the project that should take 1-2 days.
