SALEM - City council approved the re-issuance of notes to continue paying for infrastructure improvements for specific projects on the east and north ends of the city during a special session Tuesday.
One ordinance dealt with $683,500 for the completed Pershing Street extension and the Bentley-Cunningham roads connector on the east end and the other ordinance dealt with $270,000 for the completed Springdale Street extension, now known as Legacy Lane, on the north side.
