City council has approved an addition $50,000 required to complete the water infrastructure improvements on Oliver Street.

The City says the existing budget for this project is $100,000 to replace water service connections and accompanying equipment.

An extra $50,000 is required to replace main-line valve clusters that are more than 50 years old and were not initially identified as needing to be replaced.

Also included in the $50,000 are funds to replace a portion of a cast iron water main that runs between City Hall and Glen Arbor and connects to water main on Oliver Street.
