The Auburn City Council unanimously voted to approve two resolutions advancing the Genesee Street paving project during Thursday night’s council meeting.
First, council members voted to pay 100 percent of the project costs upfront — a total of nearly $4.7 million. Upon completion of the project, the city will be reimbursed from both local and state funds. The city’s total contribution will be $339,257, according to the resolution.
The council also granted a construction contract for the project to F. Rizzo Construction for $4,148,679. Work is scheduled to begin on the road paving in early spring, City Manager Jeff Dygert said.
