Good news was shared with Isanti City Council Oct. 19 regarding the assessments for the Main Street reconstruction project that took place this summer. 

“Between a good bid price and running under on some of our quantities, we’re anticipating the actual amount to be assessed to be about 18.5% lower than we had told everyone at the preliminary meetings,” said city engineer Jason Cook of Bolton and Menk. “So, pretty good news. Everything went quite well. It’s about $1,000 less per average property.”

The amount to be assessed to property owners adjacent to the project is $133,672, which will be distributed over all the properties according to assessable front foot, according to Cook.

The council passed a resolution approving the amount to be assessed, as well as a resolution setting a public hearing Nov. 16 during the regular city council meeting at 7 p.m. for the final assessable amount.


In other business, the council:

•Approved naming the amphitheater Bluebird Park Amphitheater.

•Approved naming the beer cave at the newly constructed municipal liquor store the Bozo and Luella Polzin beer cave. 

•Approved an approximately $17,000 change order to the cost to construct the liquor store in order to add ice guard on the roof.
