At last week’s Jellico Utility meeting, board members discussed the current sewer project, which is going on in Jellico. Citizens may not have to deal with flagmen and congested roads for much longer, as the project is nearly complete.
“We have around 90-percent of the originally planned work completed,” said Jellico Utility Manager Mike Bethurem. A Community Block Development Grant (CDBG) has funded the sewer project.
Bethurem said he knew there had been some traffic flow problems, but said the crews had been addressing them the best they could.
