Municipal road aid spells out Glasgow’s paving plan

GLASGOW — The budget was a big part of city council’s focus at their regular meeting on Monday, but a certain part of the budget was talked about even before the public hearing on the budget.

The Municipal Road Aid Fund was the focus of the first public hearing by the council before their regular meeting and it spelled out the plans for the year of what roads would be paved, improved and other plans for the streets around the city.

According to Kentucky Revised Statute, the city council must conduct a road aid fund hearing each year for the funds. Those funds are received from the state and are only used to patch and pave roads, create sidewalks, curbs, guttering, and other parts of the roads.

“We go over these things after having driven the roads to see which ones need work and then we look at revenue and expenses,” said Councilman Doug Isenberg, chair of the Infrastructure Committee. “We look at those that are in worst need of repair.”

Roads on the list for patching and paving in the 2012-13 fiscal year are Jefferson Street, Stewart Drive, Clarksdale Circle, Sandwood, Willow Drive, Dogwood Avenue, Grandview, Meadow Drive, Cardinal Court, Stadium Drive and Marmak Drive.

Sidewalks will be installed or improved on St. Mary’s Court and Lexington Drive, and Grandview Avenue will have curb, gutter, drainage and sidewalk work.
