City Manager: Approximately three miles of city streets resurfaced this year
City Manager Bobby Mouser on Monday, Sept. 9 provided city council members with an update on this year’s road resurfacing project.
Each year, the City of Stigler sets aside a certain amount of money in the budget to resurface city streets.
This year, approximately three miles of city streets are being resurfaced, he said.
The streets are being resurfaced by city crews, with the assistance of Haskell County commissioners and road crews, Mouser said.
The city manager said he appreciates county commissioners “for being partners with us on this,” and said the partnership “allows us to do at least 50 percent more than we would otherwise be able to do with the available budget. This is the fourth year that they have partnered with us and we certainly do appreciate it. They are timely and they are very good at what they do, much like our people are.”
This year’s project includes resurfacing on: S.E. Fifth Street, N.W. “A” Street, Panther Lane - the road near the high school, portions of S.W “A” Street and portions of H Street.
Expenses for the rocks, oil and rock hauling for the project have been estimated at $75,000 to $80,000, Mouser said.
At press time, the project was expected to be completed Wednesday, Sept. 11.
