Town Board ready to award contract multi-use walkway on West Catawba Avenue

May 28. The Cornelius Town Board is expected to award a $162,202 contract to the Oliver Paving Co. which will be used to complete the 10-foot wide multi-use walkway connecting McDowell Creek Greenway to Kenton Place.

“Currently, there are two sections of multipurpose path missing on the north and south side of Robbins Park,” said Project Manager Tyler Beardsley. “This project would fill in those gaps creating a continuous path from the McDowell Creek Greenway to Kenton Place.” Oliver Paving, based in Charlotte, was the lowest responsive bidder for the project.

Also on Monday, the commissioners will conduct a public hearing on the proposed $19.7 million 2016 Cornelius General Fund Budget. The spending plan retains the current town tax rate of 24 cents/$100 tax value. The meeting, which starts with the Pledge of Allegiance and open public comments, begins at 7 pm in Town Hall on Catawba Avenue a half-block from Main Street.
