Streets in need of more than cosmetic repairs



Here are the highlights of a $9 million bond proposal city residents will vote on Tuesday, May 14:

MONEY: $9 million general obligation bond to be paid back through additional property taxes over 10 years. City would set aside $500,000 in normal street appropriations in each of next three years to fund a fourth year of major improvements.

THE WORK: Primarily patching, sealing and resurfacing 255 of Duncan’s 1,100 sections of streets. Sections typically a block long. Work likely would start after Jan. 1, 2014 and continue for three years. Generally, improved streets could last 10 or more years with only routine maintenance required.

THE VOTE: Tuesday, May 14, for Duncan residents who are registered to vote. Simple majority – meaning 50 percent plus one vote – required for approval.
