City Implements Utility Franchise Fees to Fund Street Maintenance and Street Lighting Programs

The City of Baxter’s street system is one of the most valuable and costly assets owned by the city. Extending the asset’s life through regular maintenance with a pavement management plan (PMP) provides the lowest possible cost to the city and its stakeholders.  A PMP uses actual condition data to estimate the best time to complete maintenance activities.   Regular maintenance, including a sealcoating program, extends the life of streets and lowers the overall cost of the street investment by avoiding the need for more frequent and costly reconstruction projects.
