Roadway Maintenance Fee

The City has established a roadway maintenance fee to be paid by utility customers within the city limits. Such fee shall be set in amounts which will provide funds to properly maintain the city transportation system. 

Collection of the fee shall be made by a monthly charge to be added to the city Municipal Account Statement beginning with the first utility bill after January 1, 2019. 

If you have questions or concerns, please email them to the City Administrator or contact City Hall. 

Roadway Maintenance Fund 

A separate and dedicated fund shall be created effective December 13, 2018, to be known as the Roadway Maintenance Fund. All fees collected by the City for the purpose of construction and maintenance of the transportation system shall be deposited in the Roadway Maintenance Fund. It shall not be necessary or required for the expenditures from the fund to specifically relate to any particular property from which the fees were collected. Billing will begin for commercial and residential accounts on January 1, 2019. A report of the Roadway Maintenance Fund and the street maintenance fee program will be provided to the City Council on an annual basis.
