"this is a little bit of a growing part of the downtown area that people really like and staff keeps hammering it down on us that this is not part of a levy funded project." bidding will begin in 20á19 with construction set to begin in 20á20. reporting live in rochester brooke mckivergan kimt news 3./// thank you brooke. the bidding for the heart of the city project is expected to be in the range of 12 to 16 (million dollars./// a man convicted of sexual assault
