2011 street improvements approved

The Hastings City Council moved forward with its 2011 street improvement project Monday. The council ordered the improvements, approved the project plans and authorized city staff to start seeking project bids. Also approved were the assessments for the project.

More than 400 homes will be affected by the improvements. Assessments will account for 27 percent of the project cost, while the rest will be covered by the city's utility funds and bonds. The city has budgeted $3.5 million for the project.
