Supervisors discuss road-paving projects

The Grundy County Board of Supervisors and county engineer Gary Mauer addressed a pair of road-paving projects during the board’s regular meeting on Monday morning.


According to Mauer, the supervisors in Black Hawk County have backed out of a project that would have paved five miles of Grundy Road, a gravel road on the border between the two counties, for the time being due to concerns about bonding. The project could still be completed in the future, but the supervisors hoped to get a clearer picture on when that might be.


“I think it should be all or nothing. If we’re going to do it, let’s do it and bond for it,” Supervisor Harlyn Riekena said. “I can’t see starting without a finish line.”
