Pioneer Drive work might be easier to pay for on installment plan

March 21, 2012

A Pioneer Drive resident objected to a plan to charge residents 8 percent interest if they pay on the installment plan for city road work and water main going past their homes.

Now, the city Finance Committee says it will consider lowering the rate.

Steve Mainus spoke last week at a hearing on the Pioneer Drive road project, which will be done this year. The Public Works Committee on Monday night sent his request for a lower interest rate to the Finance Committee.

But Mainus didn't get far with his other point, which was to not extend city water at all to those along the street. The water main is still coming through.
