Retaining Wall at Library Park to be Repaired

Tue, 06 Aug 2019 11:03:08 CDT

   

The city of Litchfield is moving forward with repair work for the brick landscape wall at Library Park.

The city council approved a on Thursday, Aug. 1, for a total cost of $11,485. The quote was given by the company Dobrinich and Johns Brick.

The building and zoning department had requested quotes for the repair of the landscape retaining wall, which has sustained weather damage. According to city officials, it has become dangerous to persons seeking a place to sit due to the possibility of it collapsing.

The quote given was for a partial rebuild, total tuck pointing of the wall and treating the entire wall with a water repellant. Efforts were made to acquire multiple quotes, but only one was submitted. Building and Zoning Inspector Gary Baker reached out to three companies, but they all declined. Money for the project will come from the city's Tax Increment Financing (TIF) funds.

The next Litchfield City Council meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 15, at 6:30 p.m.
