SL Council Approves Condo Driveway Contract

A contract has been awarded for the Storm Lake condo entrance road project.

City manager Keri Navratil says the city has a developer’s agreement with Foutch Brothers to construct driveways at the entrance of the condo site. The city is responsible for 100-thousand dollars of the cost, with the developer paying the rest.

The engineer’s estimate of the cost is 328-thousand dollars. Five bids were received, with the low bid of 255-thousand dollars from Healy Excavating of Lake View.

Monday afternoon, Navratil told the city council the project includes two driveways from Sunrise Park Road into the development… and this needs to be done before Foutch proceeds with the project. She says Foutch is bound by the developer’s agreement, and must begin work next spring. They already have been some repair work at the site.
