Transportation funds to be used for street projects

GRANDVIEW – The city of Grandview’s Transportation Benefit District was established to determine how monies collected from a $20 car tab fee paid by motorists who reside within the Grandview city limits will be utilized on local projects.

Tuesday night, City Administrator Cus Arteaga told the council members that serve as members of the Transportation Benefit District board that the city has several street projects it would like to complete.

The city has plans to sealcoat streets located near a recently constructed apartment complex near Carriage Square. Also planned is an asphalt overlay on East Second Street and a sidewalk extension on Forsell Road to Wallace Way.

Arteaga said the city would also like to complete the design of a project in the 300 block of Birch Street.

The funds used for each of these projects would greatly reduce the money in Transportation Benefit District coffers. “But, the fund was never intended to be built up…it was meant to complete projects,” said Arteaga.

It is estimated the projects will cost approximately $123,000.

The Transportation Benefit District Board approved the use of the funding for the projects by a 4-0 vote.
