INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 12, 2014)– The full City-County council will consider a new proposal Monday night to pay for road repairs in Marion County.
The plan will include an additional $8 million for pothole repairs.
The council recently approved an initial $8 million, but Democrats said more money is needed to fix the roads, badly damaged by a harsh winter.
“It comes from our fiscal stability fund in the form of a loan that we can pay back with transportation dollars. We think that’s a viable way to address the emergency need that’s left over from the storm that we had this year with the vortexes coming through,” said Zach Adamson, city-county councilor at-large.
The new proposal calls for allotting a total of $16 million for road repairs. DPW recently released a list of priority repairs.
The meeting is scheduled for Monday at 7 p.m.
