Prior Lake City Council plans for money shortfall in Highway 13/21 construction

The City’s share of the cost for the Hwy13/CR21 road work has jumped from a projected $2.6 million to $3.8 million (Prior Lake American, June 29), a 46% increase. The project estimate included $560,000 for monuments to be placed in the CR 21 road median. In response to citizen questions about the
monuments, the following graphic was received from City Hall. The graphic depicts looking toward the
library from across CR21. The three poles are intended to represent boat sails.

The City Council voted 4 to 1 to continue with the project but rebidding the monuments in an effort to
reduce costs. Residents can watch the video of the June 29 special meeting of the Council by going to
