Bushnell is moving forward on a project to replace sewer lines in the Wells-Hale part of the city.
Mayor Steve Russell says construction should begin in the spring.
He says, “(We'll) try to make them larger. Try to handle flow. You know, people were getting backed-up in their basements, stuff like that when we did have rain. So we're hoping that this will help cure some of that.”
Russell says the city will have to coordinate the construction with the golf course since some of the lines run under it.
The Brickhouse Restaurant in Bushnell burned down in March of 2011.
Nothing has been done to the Main Street site since the fire. Debris remains in the alley behind it.
Mayor Steve Russell says the building is an eyesore and a safety hazard.
He says, “A lot of people say, 'You know, how much longer do we have to look at this mess? Can't we get it cleaned up? And, of course, if we condemn the property and the city goes in and does it it's going to cost several thousands of dollars.”
