City street paving begins Friday with Omni Drive
City paving began Friday on Omni Drive near the hospital, the first of several streets scheduled to be paved during this round of street work.

Paving city streets in 2017 began Friday with Omni Drive.
Also slated for paving are Jefferson Street, College Street, Donnell Street, Sunnyside Heights and Parkview Drive.
McMinnville Public Works assistant director Brad Hennessee said Rebel Hill Street was originally on the list but it had to be temporarily pulled and will be considered for paving sometime after the city’s 2017-18 budget year begins July 1.
“Hopefully, they will get to the others on this spring’s list, except Rebel Hill Street. Water repairs are not complete. It should be paved after the city’s budget passes,” he said.
Rebel Hill Street milling and paving is estimated at $45,541. Because that work will not be done, other streets have been added to the paving list.
“Patterson Street, WCHS Drive, and Pepper Branch Road were added in its place,” said Hennessee.
Officials placed $150,000 in the 2016-17 fiscal year budget for paving. Tinsley Asphalt was awarded the city’s paving contract.
