July 8, 2017 – West Bend, WI – The City of West Bend Department of Public Works sewer utility staff televised the storm sewers located under the Vine Street employee parking lot this week. We had been hoping to crack-fill, seal-coat and re-stripe the Vine Street lot at the conclusion of the Mad Max improvements. Mad Max is complete with their work but it appears as though the asphalt, one storm sewer line and one manhole will need to be fully reconstructed. Staff is determining the best long-term fix for this parking lot and we are reluctant to invest our limited funds into failing infrastructure.
Cost estimates are being prepared by our engineering department before moving forward. Our department of public works staff will re-stripe the parking stalls on the existing asphalt, later in 2017.
