Prepare To See Road Work Signs


Yakima city street crews will be busy in the near future now that voters approved Proposition 1 that dedicates $2,000,000 a year for city street repairs.

Proposition 1 was the idea of city council members Rick Ensey and Sarah Bristol. Ensey says he’s happy voters supported the issue.

“We knew people wanted road repairs and we know they didn’t want a tax increase. So we’re glad this found support. Road repairs without a tax increase who could say no to that?”

Earlier this year the city put together a list of the streets in the most need of repair. The list includes popular roads like Walnut, Englewood, Lincoln, Powerhouse and Washington Avenues.

The list will now be used to form a work schedule so city crews can get busy spending upwards of $2,000,000 a year on city roadwork. Much of the work will start in the spring of next year.

On Tuesday nearly 73 percent of voters approved Proposition 1.
