Where and how will our Pavement Maintenance Utility Fee dollars be spent?

Because City residents and business owners are paying the fee, revenue will only be invested in streets under the City's jurisdiction. The dollars are used for rehabilitation and maintenance of City streets. This includes slurry seals, pavement overlays, reconstruction, and roadside work (rockfall protection, guardrail, etc.).

Revenues are not used to construct new infrastructure to expand the transportation system or enhancements not directly related to improving or maintaining the condition of existing City streets.
