Council agrees to split project’s costs

A recommendation that the city share the costs of street and light improvements at the new Sports Complex was approved Monday by the city council.

The Levelland Community Development Corporation recently recommended that the city split the costs of widening  Equalizer Road and putting in 13 street lights, explained City Manager Rick Osburn.

Widening part of the road to include a turning lane would cost about $100,000. It would cost $60,000 or more to install the lights.

The city’s portion of the project would be $80,000-85,000 and it would come out of the General Fund.

The improvements would address the issues of traffic flow, safety and security, Osburn noted.

Councilman Max Ledesma asked about lights in the parking lot.

Osburn said they were included in the original construction bids.
