City Administrator Craig Mattson explained that the condition of the roads guides the projects and establishes priorities.
Sometimes emergencies will require changes to the order in which improvements are made.
also pointed out that the city has some debt payments which are nearly paid off.
The money used for those could be applied to streets.
An estimate of what an assessment to a property in the "improvement area" in 2015 is about $1,900.
The street work here involves re-claim pavement, bringing the road base up to current street specifications and a final overlay with asphalt.
said later that the assessments for street work on the west side of the freeway would be much higher because more extensive work would be required.
