The most significant item to come out of this Public Works Committee meeting wasn’t even heard.
was held to the next committee meeting because Alderman Willie Wade
was unavailable for this meeting and Alderman Robert Bauman
wanted the entire committee to hear the item. The goal of the resolution is to resolve an ongoing problem with the payment breakdown for city street repairs. Regularly the city proposes the reconstruction of a specific street but the property owners turn down the project because of how the cost is shifted onto the property owners. The intent of this resolution would be to move the burden of street repair from property owners to automobile users allowing for more street repair projects to move forward. This resolution should come up again at the next Public Works Committee meeting on May 29th, 2008.
