The planned deconstruction of the Pella Power Plant next year has changed some of the road work projects that were scheduled for next year. The surface of Oskaloosa St. was slated for 2013, but in an effort to ease congestion on that road Hazel St. reconstruction has been pushed forward in its place. The City Council has awarded the contract for that work to Garden and Associates in Oskaloosa. The council asked whether or not a sidewalk could be installed on the west side of Hazel street during the reconstruction, but the city does not own an adequate amount of space for a sidewalk to be placed on both sides.
