Mayor James Diossa has been tackling the problem head-on by a 100% continuation of last year’s "Road Repaving Fund" in his FY 2017 budget.
The Fund is seeded by $200,000 in annual payments that the Wyatt Detention Facility is scheduled to make to the City between 2015 and 2019 as outlined in a March 30, 2015 agreement between the Wyatt and the city. This short-term revenue will be used to address the city’s long-term infrastructure needs.
This fund will be used to finance the rehabilitation of many of the city’s worst roads. Roadways targeted for repaving will be chosen based upon a study conducted by RIDOT on the condition of the city’s streets. (See link below). Addressing the long-term infrastructure needs of the city will pave the way for a brighter future for residents and business owners!
