A new Mexican restaurant on Crawfordsville’s south side is getting ready to serve customers.
Mexican Bytes received a conditional certificate of occupancy from the Board of Public Works and Safety on Wednesday. The business is in the former Verizon Wireless store next to Home Depot on U.S. 231 South.
The restaurant is expected to be open next week, said Brian Bechtel, division chief of code enforcement for the Crawfordsville Fire Department.
A final certificate of occupancy will be issued after a platform and ladder are installed on the building to ensure access to the roof for maintenance. The owner has contacted a fabricator, Bechtel said.
The board awarded bids for road work funded through the state’s Community Crossings Matching Grant program.
Pavement Solutions Inc. won the bid for crack sealing in the amount of $75,387.69. Rieth-Riley Construction Co. received the bid for paving totaling $388,744.
The board also awarded bids for a sewer line extension on U.S. 231 South. David Price Excavating submitted the lowest bid for the project in the amount of $277,800.
The other bid was from New Castle-based Clark Excavation and Utility for $431,370.
Crawfordsville Veterinary Clinic will hook into the sewer line for its new office being constructed next door.
In other business, the board:
• Approved a request from Building Essential Skills Together to park its food truck in front of the Masonic Cornerstone for an indoor yard sale and marketplace from 8 a.m. to approximately 2 p.m. Saturday. The truck will use three spaces on South Washington Street north of Wabash Avenue.
