Each year the Engineering Department, in conjunction with the annual City budgeting process prepares a Work Program to be presented to City Council for review and approval. Review by Council typically occurs in February and March when projects are presented by staff and input is taken from Council and the public.
The size of the program varies by year depending on available funding. Funding sources include Capital Improvement Project Bonding, Road Use Tax, General Fund, Tax Increment Financing, Local Option Sales Tax, Storm Water Management, and Sanitary Sewer Replacement Funds. Local Option Sales Tax has provided the ability to complete a consistently larger program, better allowing the City to maintain existing infrastructure and provide new systems associated with new development.
2017 Annual Work Program
The City's plan to achieve compliance with the American's with Disabilities Act. This includes sidewalks, crosswalks, bus stops, pedestrian signals, pedestrian ramps, and other features related to the safe movement of pedestrians.
On May 18, 2017 City Council directed staff to more comprehensively enforce existing regulations regarding all non-regulatory signs in the street right-of-way and on City Property. A draft policy has been prepared to inform the public of the code and the anticipated enforcement of the policy.
The policy is intended to promote and protect the public health, safety and welfare; by creating a more attractive economic and business climate within the commercial and office areas of the City; by enhancing and protecting the physical appearance of all areas of the City; and by reducing the distractions, obstructions and hazards to pedestrian and auto traffic caused by the indiscriminate placement and use of signs.
