City Council Expected to Hear Opposition over Street Maintenance Fee This Week
The battle over street maintenance fees is expected to take center stage at city hall this week. Here is a key point, Assistant City Manager Oscar Martinez explained that the money generated from the fee will not be used to do heavy repair our streets, rather to maintain them with things like seal coats so the streets will last longer. On Tuesday, council members will discuss the issue once again. On the table, how to charge businesses for the work. Council members have already agreed to charge residents 7 dollars a month on their utility bills. However a second reading of the ordinance is required before it actually goes into effect.
