Current Road Projects
Repair work such as crack sealing is taking place now throughout the City. 2018 reconstruction projects based on the Rehabilitation and Maintenance Plan adopted as a part of the 2016 Road Study will go out to bid in November and based on pricing, final plans will be made. 6000 West is one road that will be reconstructed. Other roads will also receive patching and seal work. Construction will start spring 2018. As plans are finalized, more information will be posted.

Transportation Utility Fund and Fee
On May 16, 2017, City Council voted to create a Transportation Utility Fund. This fund is dedicated for the operation, improvement, maintenance, and rehabilitation of roads and funded through an $18.50 per month Transportation Fee on each utility account. That fee began August 1, 2017.

Fund Requirements and Decision
The requirements of this fund are that:

  • Monies can only be used for Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation
  • An annual report as a part of the budget process will be provided
  • The fee will be re-evaluated if the City gains more or less road funds through the state's B&C gas tax or other sources
  • The fee will expire June 30, 2028 when all of the City's bonds will be paid off
