The City's plan to achieve compliance with the American's with Disabilities Act. This includes sidewalks, crosswalks, bus stops, pedestrian signals, pedestrian ramps, and other features related to the safe movement of pedestrians.
Each year the Engineering Department, in conjunction with the annual City budgeting process prepares a Work Program to be presented to City Council for review and approval. Review by Council typically occurs in February and March when projects are presented by staff and input is taken from Council and the public.
The size of the program varies by year depending on available funding. Funding sources include Capital Improvement Project Bonding, Road Use Tax, General Fund, Tax Increment Financing, Local Option Sales Tax, Storm Water Management, and Sanitary Sewer Replacement Funds. Local Option Sales Tax has provided the ability to complete a consistently larger program, better allowing the City to maintain existing infrastructure and provide new systems associated with new development.
