City eyes more paving

McMinnville officials have earmarked $500,000 to continue paving improvements for fiscal year 2017-18.“We requested $1 million to pave in the upcoming year and administration changed it to $100,000,” said McMinnville Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee, to members of the city Streets and Sanitation Committee. “I don’t know if they did not hit the zero or if that was intentional.”Hennessee presented a list of streets the department could possibly pave, depending on the amount of funds placed into the budget. The city uses a pavement condition index to categorize streets from worst to best.
