The two slides below came from a presentation that was on the August 14, 2018 city council agenda.
The first one tells us that city staff believes it would cost one billion dollars to repave all of our city streets.
Staff indicates that on average a street needs to be repaved every 25 years.
Their arithmetic concludes that the annual cost of repaving the streets should be about $39 million.
How are they doing?
The second slide tells us what has been happening.
Yet we continue to spend money on niceties.
The tax man cometh.
We deserve better
