Roadwork has been a 2016 priority in the City of Taylor, and this week's City of Taylor Podcast, Coffee with Mayor Rick Sollars, discusses the ongoing program with host Dr. Paul Reeves and Karl Ziomek.
Mayor Sollars talks about the City being more proactive in infrastructure repairs, and covers areas like concrete panel replacement, hot mix asphalt, PASER ratings and expands into the City’s sewer cleaning and inspection program.
The sewer project is the result of a $2 million Stormwater, Asset Management and Wastewater Program grant, originally filed in November 2013. Through Thanksgiving week, the project has cleaned and inspected 71,182 linear feet, or about 26 percent of the total project, for an estimated cost of $760,400. The SAW grant program is scheduled to end in June 2017.
