Officials Hope For More Road Funding


Yakima City officials are hoping to gain dedicated funding for road improvements in Yakima through the passage of Proposition One on the Primary ballot.

City Manager Tony O’Rourke says the measure calls for a change in the city charter that would require the city to invest a minimum of 2-million dollars a year from existing resources for city streets.

O’Rourke says it’s a mandatory dedication of money to streets that are in great need of repair. He says in 7 years 23 percent of the city streets will be failing if the city doesn’t take quick action.

O’Rourke says, “It’s in response to the fact that our streets are in such bad shape because there hasn’t been historical annual investments in improving them.”
