Looks like South El Montes spending half a million bucks on city streets. Reporter Jennifer McLain reports that the City Council approved $650,000 last week for improvements on Merced, Delco and Luder avenues, which apparently are laden with potholes and uneven pavement.
Here are some excerpts from the story:
The street upgrades are part of a five-year capital improvement plan targeting city streets. In the past two years, the city has spent about $3.5 million improving nearly 20 streets.
“All the streets that we have improved are those on the main corridor, and they are very deplorable streets in residential areas,” said City Manager Anthony Ybarra.
In addition to Merced, Delco and Luder avenues, there are eight other streets slated for renovations. Costs for the future projects have not yet been approved, Ybarra said.
Its nice to see taxpayer money going back to the taxpayers.
