Grants up for commission’s approval

Bottom line

City staff members will ask commissioners to approve the application for three state grants to fund road improvement projects. The grants would be for projects in 2010 or 2011.


The city’s Public Works staff is recommending a $520,000 project to repair joints on 23rd Street from Haskell Avenue to the eastern city limits. The city’s share of the project would be $320,000. The city also is being asked to apply for a project that would add a center turn lane to Sixth Street from Folks Road to about 1,000 feet west of Monterey Way. The final project the city is considering applying for is East Hills Drive to Franklin Road. The project is seen as a way to improve traffic safety for motorists entering and leaving the East Hills Business Park. The estimated cost of the project is $3.5 million. The grant would require the city to be responsible for 25 percent of the costs, but city staff is recommending that the city be prepared to pay a larger percentage if it is awarded the grant.
