Three roadway resurfacing projects, also funded through the surtax program, are under construction. The areas affected are primarily in the central part of the City.
Engineering plans to install branded wayfinding signs throughout the City have been completed. The City Is In the final stages of project review with the County and hopes to enter an Interlocal Agreement in spring 2023.
