ROAD REPAIR

Our City Council representatives have repeatedly voted against restoring lost services and proposals to increase public safety staffing. They’ve voted for spending on art and consultants. Let’s prior­itize spending so that we fund services.

  • After a decade of neglecting the maintenance of our streets, the City has finally developed and is implementing a plan to restore our streets. My opponent says that it took a long time for the streets and sewers to get in the shape they are now and adds that it will take a long time for them to be fixed. We should have never gotten to this point.
  • We experience stormwater flooding problems in the city. The City has begun to address those problems. We will need to insist that our stormwater solutions receive adequate funding in the coming years.

 

Roads have been patched and re-patched, instead of being repaired, for years.

Ann Arbor had 266 street segments rated 'failed' in 2017
