ALLEY REPAIR PETITION

 

Gary Antone, Public Works Director, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation that the City Council receive staff information, consider the alley repair petition, and provide direction to staff.

 

The cost to repair the alley by City staff would be approximately $15,000.  Complaints were made by petitioners that the patching of pot-holes in the alley is not helping due to the irregularity of the patches.  The public needs to be able to access the businesses off of the alley safely. One option suggested by City Staff was to expend funds to repave the pot-holes and make sure they are filled while leaving the bumps until a future date when they can be repaired correctly.

 

The decision was made to have the staff look into this and bring back to the Agenda for the July 5, 2005 City Council Meeting.
