Breezy council's roads discussion continues

The Breezy Point City Council met in its second of three roads workshops Monday afternoon, May 20. City administrator Joe Rudberg said by phone that for the most part the meeting was educational for the council and included information on the city’s assessment policy, available funds, a gravel roads inventory and road improvement standards, among other issues.

Rudberg said the council also reviewed a roads inventory that covered the city’s gravel roads and which are in greatest need of repair. The council requested an inventory of the city’s paved roads, which was not available May 20 due to lack of time in compiling the information.

Also in discussion were the draft road improvement standards, which are the city’s standards for clearing and grubbing, bituminous pavement, cul-de-sacs, drainage and more. Rudberg said the council requested alternate approaches to some of the draft standards.

The council also discussed finances, Rudberg said. Included in the council’s materials was information on fund balances and options for funding road improvements, including bonding and assessments.

Because it was a workshop meeting, no decisions were made May 20. The council has one more road workshop scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 14.
