Downtown project will drain some city funds

WENATCHEE — The city will nearly deplete three street funds to cover higher-than-expected costs for repaving downtown Wenatchee Avenue this summer.

Not only was the lowest bidder $100,000 over the city’s $1.35 million cost estimate for the project, but the winning bid will require more payment to come from the city’s thin street reserve funds and less from its robust utility funds than initially expected.
