Benton City Council's Streets and Drainage Committee voted Tuesday night to recommend contracting with Iowa Bridge and Culvert for a drainage improvement project on Northshore Drive.
The company was the low bidder on the project.
A resolution to accept the bid will be brought before the full council on July 28.
The drainage problems on Northshore resulted from the Military Road widening project, according to Mayor David Mattingly.
Despite a decrease in sales tax revenue, Bryant Mayor Jill Dabbs says she is confident in the city's financial state.
Dabbs made that assessment during a meeting Tuesday of the City Council's Finance and Personnel Committee.
The mayor noted that revenue currently is down by 4 percent, so all of the city departments currently are operating at 6 percent or greater under budget.
"When you hear the naysayers out there complaining about how much money the city has spent, remember this: At least it is on things and projects that are meaningful to our neighbors and friends and families.
Benton City Council's Streets and Drainage Committee is set to meet today at 6 p.m. to discuss and possibly approve bids to improve Northshore Drive.
The meeting will be in Mayor David Mattingly's conference room at the Benton Municipal Complex.
