New sales tax revenue assigned to the street maintenance budget will be used to increase the number of lane miles maintained each year (filling potholes, resurfacing roads, etc.) — extending the life of the City’s best roads.
These improvements benefit the entire community by improving air quality, reducing street reconstruction needs, and contributing to individual cost savings by decreasing fuel consumption and the frequency of tire repair and car maintenance.
The budget information below is for fiscal year 2018-2019 and reflects a shortened collection period that will begin in August 2018. Budgets reflect additional revenue only and do not represent total department spending or existing sales tax revenue.
