WILLMAR — The Willmar City Council on Tuesday will consider calling for bids on 2022 street reconstruction projects as well as a project to eliminate a left station.

If the plans and specifications are approved Tuesday and the council authorizes advertising for bids, the lift station bids would be opened March 16, according to the meeting materials posted on the city website at willmarmn.gov . The street reconstruction projects are divided into four bids, and those would be opened March 23.

The regular council meeting is being conducted at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday because Monday is the Presidents Day holiday.

Also on Tuesday, the council will consider a salary increase for City Administrator Leslie Valiant based on performance, as per the employment agreement with her.

A six-month performance evaluation of Valiant was conducted in closed session Feb. 7, as allowed by the state's Open Meeting Law, and a summary of conclusions will be presented Tuesday by Mayor Marv Calvin prior to council action on the proposed salary increase.
