McMinnville officials will be meeting at 7 a.m. Friday morning, July 26, for a special called session in an effort to net the city $715,000 in Surface Transportation Program funds to pave streets.Public Works director Bill Brock came before Streets and Sanitation Committee members on Tuesday prior to the 7 p.m. board meeting asking the mayor to sign a required agreement in an effort to get the funds.“We are having to do something new, which I’ve never had to do before, and that’s provide a signed standard form of agreement between the owner and the professional services,” said Brock. “I need the mayor’s signature on these or our process with the state goes no further.”STP provides funds to each city and county based on population. Usually, $50,000 to $60,000 is given to the city each year.
