Quincy city council looks at infrastructure needs

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

City leaders focused on the roads that you drive on everyday during the city council meeting on Monday.

Alderman looked at different ways to fund necessary upgrades to the city's roads that you drive on every single day during its meeting Monday night.

The council focused on the infrastructure portion of the budget and how they plan to fund the city's capital improvement plan.

Officials said it would take several millions of dollars each year to fund all of the needs and historically they have only funded a portion each year.

That plan is different from the mayor's $33 million infrastructure plan that has already passed because it is funded through bonds.

The mayor said both investments will help fund as many projects as possible to bring improvements.

"We've doubled the investments in infrastructure the last six years but here we're going to have this 33 million dollar program that is actually going to be more than the last 5 or 6 budgets combined," said Moore.

The city will release which streets will be under the yearly capital improvement plan closer to when the budget is passed around May 1st because it is still being decided.
