Bethany Council Approves ARPA Funding For Senior Center Sidewalk Work

Bethany’s Board of Aldermen approved several bid requests and a request for American Rescue Plan Act funding from the Harrison County Council on Aging during a meeting held on Monday night. The Senior Center’s request of $5,774 was approved to be used for sidewalk work. The City of Bethany’s ARPA funding has been assigned for allocation, so the city will no longer be taking any more funding requests. Bethany City Administrator Jake Taylor also recommended that the council earmark $100,000 for the Downtown Bethany Improvement, Incorporated group to be used by the board to revitalize the exteriors of buildings and improve public spaces in the Missouri Main Street Corridor.

Herzog received the bid for the 2022 Street Overlay Project. The work will be done in the fall since Herzog will have a plant in Bethany at that time. The savings will amount to nearly $50,000. The streets selected for the work are 8th street from Beekman to Monson, Bartlett Street from 28th to 39th, 13th Street from Main to Central Street, and New Daily Road from the City Limit sign to Highway 69. The work will amount to about $285,000.

A bid from Kelly Equipment was approved to purchase 100 trash cans for Bethany city residents. The city is still determined how those trash cans may be distributed.

Bids were also approved to Nail Excavating for labor for the 2022 Gas Service Line Project. Spurling Construction received the bid for projects for the city’s Gas and Electric Building.

The council reviewed the ads that will be published for summer mowing positions, bid information for hay ground owned by the city, and the sale of property located near Roleke Drive.

Reappointments were also approved for Bethany’s Housing Authority, the Parks Board, Planning and Zoning, and Downtown Bethany Improvement, Incorporated.
