It has come to my attention that folks are asking whether former alderman Victor Wogen, as himself or as Masonry Works, LLC, landed city projects beyond the six post-demolition masonry repair projects of 2008. The answer is yes. In the fall of 2008, the 2009 “streetscape” project was approved, with Elliott & Wood as the contractor. Then-acting mayor Kris Povlsen and then-city clerk Donna Johnson signed the Acceptance of Proposal on September 24, 2008, which authorized payments for the work specified in the proposal. On the accompanying Material Sources and/or Sub-Contracted Work Form are listed the following:
