Swanson Wants Power Line Contractor To Reimburse Townships For Road Damge

State Rep. Dan Swanson

A Western Illinois state lawmaker wants to see a contractor reimburse a number of townships for damages caused to roads during a power line project over the winter.  State Representative Dan Swanson says a couple of road commissioners put damage estimates at $300,000 and $400,000 respectively.

Swanson met with the contractor this week. The work occurred throughout Mercer, Henry and Knox Counties.
