UPDATE: The start date for this project has been pushed back to at least this weekend, and possibly next Monday, Public Works Director Brenda Ardrey noted at Monday night's City Council meeting.

The reason for the delay is that the contractor is busy working on another project which needs to be completed before working on the City of Sedalia's milling project.
