Street Resurfacing Information
The mission of the road resurfacing program is to improve the pavement conditions of all City roads to a maintainable standard in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible.
Annually the Public Works Department evaluates 33% of the road inventory through a visual inspection of road surface conditions on a rating scale between 0 and 100 (as defined by the American Public Works Association (APWA) “Paver” rating process).
Engineers further evaluate the life expectancies of roads using truck loading and volume assumptions for road resurfacing planning and budgeting purposes.
Funding for the program has been and continues to be limited therefore priority emphasis is given to high traffic arterial and collector road systems.
From June 1977 to September 2000, the City’s Road Repaving Program was strictly based on special assessment through the petition process. Property owners that presented a valid petition to have their street paved paid two-thirds (2/3) of the road repaving cost and the City paid on-third (1/3) of the cost.
In September 2000, the City Council approved full funding of City streets utilizing monies received from the local option gasoline tax.
Since 2000, the Public Works Department was able to repave 67 miles of roads with funding from local option gas taxes.
In FY 09/10 the City will repave 16.76 miles of roads using funding from the Local Option Gas Tax, City's General Fund and the Federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
