Windom must pay $125,000 for signal replacement at 10th Street
When it comes time to replace the traffic signal lights at the corner of 10th Street and Highway 60-71 in Windom, the city of Windom will need to pick up $125,000 of the cost.
That was among the things the Windom city council learned during a recent budget planning meeting. City Administrator Steve Nasby told the council that it was MnDOT officials who informed the city that Windom must cover half of the $250,000 signal replacement cost.
The reason, Nasby was told, is that half of the intersection involves a city street, therefore, the city must pay half of the cost (the state covers costs related to the state highway).
