Street Funding Advisory Committee To Meet Tuesday, May 1

In its preliminary review of the proposed budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1, City Council members decided to solicit citizen input regarding the need for additional funds to resurface and reconstruct city streets. Mayor Dee Smith has appointed members to an advisory committee that is charged with reviewing the City’s current fiscal condition and determining whether additional funding is required.

The committee’s first meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 1 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers. Interested residents are welcome to attend the meeting.

The committee will meet several times during May and June to develop and prepare a report of its findings and recommendations to the City Council to be presented in early July. It is expected that the committee will discuss various options for additional funding including a dedicated street millage, the use of special assessments and the levying of an income tax.
