Thanks to several city projects the City of Jackson will receive upgrades both functional and cosmetic, which the board of alderman approved.
The board approved $4,200 to Strickland Engineering to help engineer the Uptown Event Power Project, which will provide dozens of new temporary power pedestals for events. Jackson director of utilities Don Schuette says installments on the east side of the Cape Girardeau Courthouse will be put in during the Missouri Department of Transportation’s roundabout project. The board then authorized $7,200 in engineering services to Strickland Engineering relative to the Uptown Historic Lighting Extension Project, which will add 16 lights to the uptown area on top of the 14 that will be installed as part of the roundabout project. The board also approved the plan to replace the wall along Brittany Drive, which has been designed by Koehler Engineering and Land Surveying, but will be built by city staff.
