Happy New Year! During mid-December, I shared with our Mayor and City Council the areas that our Public Works team will be targeting for paving during the 2016 season. The City will primarily focus on seal-coating streets versus full-rebuilds. We believe we have many roads across the City that can be saved with some minor repair and a full new coat (seal-coat) put on top of the existing road. In order for a road to survive for 28-30 years, we need to seal-coat it every 7 years. I outlined this process in the presentation shared with Council early in 2015 and posted on our website.
We will be reviewing the schedule shared with our elected officials at our January 5, 2016 City Council meeting. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please feel free to view the files here on our website.
Make it a great 2016
Erik Zimmer, City Manager
