The New Ulm City Council this (TUE) evening will take up the issue of how the city will pay for it’s half of a proposed $2-million flood levee along the Minnesota River. The council will consider funding sources for the city’s share of the approximately 10 block-long proposed levee that would be constructed along South Valley and South Front Streets. Construction of the levee is set to begin this July, with a completion date in late October. The council is also scheduled to consider a resolution supporting state and federal efforts to complete the Highway 14 four-lane expansion project within the current 20 year transportation plan, and will likely adopt an ordinance that alters the boundaries for bicycles on city sidewalks in the downtown New Ulm area. Today’s New Ulm City Council meeting starts at 5pm at city hall.
