City of Pella Comes Out Ahead on Street Project

Tuesday’s announcement of a DOT approved road construction project in Pella included multiple pieces of good news for the city. In addition to the fact that the $280,000 asphalt resurfacing project will be completely funded by Federal stimulus dollars, the project also came in well below the estimated price tag of $320,000.

Pella city administrator Mike Nardini says with $355,000 in federal funds earmarked for the project and a total project cost of roughly $323,000 with the engineering agreement; that leaves around $30,000 that the city will keep in a Federal bank account to put toward a future project.
