Improving Clinton's Roads

Posted: Updated:

Clinton city leaders will start to plan their next move on how to improve city's roads.

Pot holes, narrow streets and storm sewer systems; these are things city leaders were hoping the city's local option sales tax could be used to pay for it.
   
Right now the local option sales tax is split 50-50 between property tax relief and the road/storm sewer construction project but leaders wanted voters to approve giving 100-percent of the tax to the sewer construction project.
     
This would have moved $1.5-million from the property tax relief over to the construction project.

"The combination of them being built not quite with current engineering standards and lack of maintenance caused excessive deterioration," said Jason Craft, Clinton City Engineer.

All road construction plans that are underway now will be finished but any future projects are up in the air right now.
     
City officials say they will consider borrowing $2.8-million at next month's city council meeting to cover next year's road projects.
