A light agenda awaits the Billings City Council on Monday night. It will meet at 6:30 p.m. on the second floor of City Hall, 220 N. 27th St.

The main item on the agenda is a resolution ordering miscellaneous curb, gutter, sidewalk and storm drain improvements around the city.

These consist of unfulfilled building permit obligations and the continuance of annual improvements dealing with tripping hazards, drainage problems, property owner requests and other miscellaneous concrete work.

The total cost of the proposed work comes to $732,500, with $425,000 of that coming from assessments on property owners, $250,000 from gas tax funds, $52,500 from storm drain funds and $5,000 from water and sewer funds.

On the consent agenda, in which numerous items are voted on simultaneously unless separated for a special vote, the biggest item is a contract award for reconstructing Rimrock Road from Forsythia Boulevard to Shiloh Road.

The low bidder was Knife River-Billings, with a bid of $3,948,432. The work will include street reconstruction with turn lanes, pavement overlay, traffic signal installation, curbs, gutters and sidewalks, drive approaches, street lighting and water and sewer improvements.

Also up for a vote is the second and final reading of a zone change for 97 acres at Gabel and Hesper roads, the site of a proposed FedEx Ground trucking hub.
