Assembly to spruce up downtown and advance marine service project
The Wrangell Assembly approved bids for two projects at a special meeting last week.
The assembly will use Commercial Passenger Vessel excise tax funds to purchase $22,340 worth of new park benches and waste receptacles that will be installed in town.
“We’re are going to put them in the downtown area, mainly along Front Street, to match the theme of our older-style light poles,” said City and Borough of Wrangell Manager Jeff Jabusch.
Graber Manufacturing out of Waunakee, Wis. bid the lowest, and the borough will receive the equipment from them within the next three months.
In the same meeting, the assembly awarded a bid to the Petersburg construction company Rock N Road to begin concrete work on the next phase of the Wrangell Marine Service Center project.
The $617,350 bid award comes from Department of Commerce Community Economic Development grant funding.
