Beloit City Council – May 15, 2018

The Beloit City Council met at the Municipal Building on Tuesday evening. The council spent considerable time discussing the new speed zone at the Beloit Jr./Sr. High School and the curve to the south from Walnut to Hersey Street.

City Manager Jason Rabe announced that he met with Water Specialist John Brummer to analyze pertinent data relevant to water testing in the ongoing work to improving Beloit’s water quality.

The Court Street drainage project continues to make successful progress. The City crews have worked very diligently in dangerous situations with no safety related incidents.

The railroad crossing overhaul will be starting in the near future. Everyone agreed this is a project well overdue.

A leak in an eight inch water pipe at the swimming pool has been discovered. It is expected to be repaired soon with minimal damage. The pool is scheduled to open on May 26th.
