Twin Lakes to rebuild wall at Main Street property

The Twin Lakes Village Board on Monday approved spending $14,000 to rebuild a retaining wall for a property at 316 E. Main Street.

The village tore down the previous railroad tie wall at the property as part of the Main Street rehabilitation project last year. Tearing down the wall allowed a better aligned sidewalk, village officials have said.

How to replace the wall has been discussed at the last couple of Village Board meetings with several possibilities offered by three contractors. The village approved a five-foot high stone wall. The contract was awarded to Breezy Hill Nursery, Salem. The $14,000 includes a 5 percent contingency.

The property owner will be consulted on the color of the stone to be used.
