The group charged with reviewing this summer’s road construction projects funded by the 2012 street repair bond will get back to work next week. The Street Repair Review Panel (SRRP) was originally formed by the 2008 street repair bond measure, and has been meeting every year for the past eight years.
The panel typically meets three times a year. Over the next several months, the group will take a tour of the recently-completed projects, review staff-produced documents about the work, question and critique the summer projects, and provide feedback for city staff. The panel then creates a report for the City Manager and all of the information, including a report from an external auditor, is then shared with the City Council in the spring.
This is the first time the SRRP is meeting since voters reinvested in city streets with the passage of the 2017 street repair bond, The SRRP provided valuable insight in shaping the proposal that ultimately garnered more than 60 percent approval from voters. For more information about the SRRP call Jenifer Willer, Principal Engineer, at 541-682-6036.
