I amresponding on behalf of Mayor Pro-tem Frank Estrada.We acknowledge that the Stueve Lane is in poor condition. In the currentbudget cycle, the Council approved funding through Certificates ofObligation for paving surface improvements including Stueve Lane. Theseimprovements are scheduled to begin next spring or early summer, dependingon gas, telephone or other utility clearances, which means we make sure theydo not have planned line replacements that would damage the new pavement.For your information, drainage improvements were completed last year andsome utility line work will be completed within the next 3 to 4 months. Therailroad is also doing some improvements for the crossing area. Thesepreparation steps are necessary prior to the paving surface improvements.In the mean time, we will continue to patch areas as needed on the surface.Again, we appreciate you contacting us about this issue. Should you haveadditional questions or need clarifications, please let me know.
Sincerely, Vance RodgersAssistant City Manager
