The Roswell City Council authorized $1.7 million in contracts for the East Alley Pathway Improvement Project downtown, and approved a resolution to seek a state grant for the “green” portion of the work.
The East Alley project will rebuild an L-shaped alley behind buildings fronting Canton Street and Elizabeth Way, according to a staff report to the council. Construction is to begin in late September, with all alley work completed by April 2018.
Precision 2000 Inc. will be paid $893,456 for construction; Georgia Power, $428,166, and AT&T Southeast, $55,192, for electrical and communications infrastructure, respectively; Meer Electric, $129,687 for standby electrical work, and the balance, stand-by contracts for grant management, construction management and construction materials testing and for “unforeseen conditions.”
The council also approved increasing the project’s budget by $237,506; and seeking a $179,946 Georgia Environmental Protection Division grant to fund “green infrastructure” including permeable pavers, to be matched equally by the city.
