A storm-water runoff problem at a residence adjacent to a former Hudson Hospital parking lot on Wisconsin Street has necessitated a $22,900 fix by the city.
The city acquired the parking lot when it purchased the former hospital property for expansion of Prospect Park.
Mayor Dean Knudson explained at the City Council’s Sept. 22 meeting that it was the city’s responsibility to correct the problem because the storm-water is coming from city property.
Zappa Bros. Excavation was awarded the contract for the project. The Hudson company was the low bidder. Pember Companies of Menomonie also made a bid for the project.
