Sibley mayor meets with engineers over subdivision plans

By Paige Nash

Town of Sibley Mayor Jimmy Williams met with engineers Monday to go over the projected plans for the new Sibley subdivision.  

“We are moving along on the subdivision. We had our engineers in here looking at it today and drawing it up,” said Williams.  

In September Williams announced the purchase of 7.5 acres of land located at the Northern portion of the town, just south of the Calloway Corners Bed & Breakfast.  

Clearing of the land, along with running new water and sewage lines are set to begin in February. The new development will add 21 new homes to the already growing population.  

According to Williams, interest has been sparked, with inquiries regarding purchasing a couple of the lots already coming in.  

Money from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) has been set aside to begin infrastructure on the development.  

The town has also received grants including a Delta Regional Grant, which will be spent repairing, updating and improving their water system, along with the Saltworks Water System which has recently consolidated with Sibley’s system. 

“We have a bunch of money that we have received and are receiving from the state and federal government,” said Williams. “I am hoping we get started on that pretty soon. It will improve our water system and hopefully, we will get a grant to improve some of our roads. I am looking forward to next year. I am really excited about what is going on in the Town of Sibley right now.”
