WOODBINE — The majority of Phase III of the downtown street light project is now complete.
However, the jury is still out on who will be paying for the part of the project that went over budget.
The City Council discussed this “contingency,” as they called it, at their October 28 meeting.

Nelson continued that, essentially, the past process has always been that the City receives the bills and pays accordingly. The Main Street organization collects the grants and donations and then writes the City a check for the sum of those monies.
