PAVEMENT ISSUES
The repair and maintenance of the City's Streets are vital to the safe passage of motorist within the City. The Operations Division accomplishes this task through a systematic annual program consisting of several types of pavement repair, restoration, and reconstruction. The minor maintenance activities are performed by City crews, while major activities are performed by the private sector through annual contracts.


PRIORITY ESTABLISHMENT
The priorities of street repairs and maintenance are established through an annual survey of all city streets to determine street conditions. This is then compared to traffic volumes to determine the highest priorities for repairs. Unfortunately, due to limited funding and resources, we are not able to perform all necessary repairs in a given year, so we must choose the most critical needs that can be repaired within funding levels.
