Decatur council to consider repaving 110 streets
By Evan Belanger
The Decatur City Council will consider Monday spending about $1.78 million on local paving projects.
Council President Billy Jackson, District 1, announced last week that the council will consider a proposal for repaving portions of 110 city streets.
The proposal calls for nearly 28 miles of local roads to be resurfaced by the end of 2008. It constitutes the first major paving project undertaken by the city since the current administration took power in
Specifics call for portions of 63 local roads to be resurfaced by the end of this year at a cost of $893,529. Another 47 roads will be resurfaced next year at a cost of $888,994, if the council passes the measure.
City Engineering and Public Works Director Mark Petersohn first released the proposal in late July. Since then, city councilmen have made some changes to the list, but Jackson said none of the changes are major.
According to the city’s finance department, the council has about $3.34 million at its disposal to complete the paving projects. Most of that came from a $2 million loan approved by the council in October. The remainder was appropriated from state gasoline tax revenue.
“Given available funding, additional sections may be added or removed as necessary,” Petersohn said in an e-mail to The Daily when the initial proposal was released.
