JACKSON — Mayor Harvey Johnson Jr. says he will use funds from a bond issue to pay for a $10 million street paving project in the Capital City.
Johnson tells The Clarion-Ledger the city council would have to sign off on the proposal.
The city has devoted huge sums of money to fixing streets. Jackson spends $1 million or so each year on routine residential paving and only recently finished work on a 2009 bond issue worth $26 million that repaved 86 miles.
Johnson says the city is working on a long-term plan for water and sewer line repairs and is set to start work soon on a system to rate all of the city’s streets. Work on the street ratings was supposed to begin last fiscal year, but the project was delayed.
