The Village of Mechanicsburg has contracted with J & J Schlaegel for a $2.2 million dollar water main replacement project. This project is being paid for with grants, loans, and local matching dollars from both the Village and Goshen Township. Ohio Public Works and Ohio Water Development Association are the state entities providing low or no interest loans and grants to the Village.
This project includes water mains on the following streets: East and West Sandusky, Walnut St, W Race St, N Main St, and a portion of N Pleasant St. The water mains will be placed under the sidewalks rather than the streets which makes for cheaper repairs, less disruption to traffic and significant savings. Water meters, fire hydrants, and water valve replacements are included in this project.
This project will probably go until winter and pick back up again in the spring. Supply chains have put us a little behind and not sure how or what will take place at different times through the project. It may impact Trick or Treat, bus routes, trash pick-ups, etc. but the Village will work through these issues as they arise.
We ask for your cooperation and patience while we make these EPA mandatory improvements to our water system. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us through our website mechanicsburgvillage.com and check the website for all updates on the project.
The 7th Annual Freeze Out will be held Sunday, February 19th. There will be a 5k run or a 1k run/walk along with a Chili Cook-off and Dessert Auction. Entry for the race is $10 with all proceeds benefiting Running4Life. Entry into the chili cook-off and dessert auction is free.
