Fox Lake Receives Over $700,000 From The State For Emergency Repairs and Restoration

The city of Fox Lake got about $100,000 more than they were expecting to help pay for damage done to the Highway P/Trenton Street culvert during last years flooding. City Administrator Bill Petracek says he was expected a little more than $600,000 but the state gave the city just less than $727,000 for the emergency repairs and permanent restoration of the culvert. The money covers 100-percent of the emergency repairs and 80-percent of the permanent restoration. The city and the town of Fox Lake will now split the remaining costs. The road was closed for six-months and was reopened to traffic late last year.
