The Wood River Public Services Department has finished work on a new sewer extension that will keep the city's Chevrolet dealership in town. Jack Schmitt Chevrolet moved into the former Albrecht-Hamlin building on Highway 111 several years ago, but is in need of a new building. It is planning to locate near two other dealships just off Highway 255.
Wood River City Manager Jim Schneider says the city is helping make that happen.
The new building will be constructed next to the Shop - N - Save on Route 143, and cost somewhere between $5-million and $6-million. Schneider expects ground to be broken this fall.
