It is time to turn in a list of streets for repair during the 2009 construction season. I spent most of the weekend driving the streets of the Ward and noting the condition of each so that I can submit my list to the Engineering Department for further analysis.
The process works like this--first, the ward councilperson analyzes the street conditions in the ward. Second, ward council submits a list of proposed streets for repair to the Engineering Department. Third, the Engineering Department prepares its own rankings for the streets and estimates costs for repairs. Fourth, the Public Utilities, Safety & Environment Committee meets to review the list, the estimates and the amount of money available for repairs and votes on a final list to be repaired in 2009. The final list is submitted to full Council for approval.
I have submitted my list to the Engineering Department. A copy of the list is available under the Documents section on this web site. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to contact me. I will post as comments under this post the dates that are set for the PUSE Committee meeting and when this matter comes before full Council.
