How will we pay?

At our last City Council meeting, discussion turned to the much anticipated rebuilding of River Street. Since I began this job, people have been asking when we could fix River Street. Finally it’s in the works with a 2020 start date. It has been a long and tedious road to arrive at this point but perseverance has, at last, paid off. After 5 years of working with KDOT, Eureka finally was the recipient of a grant to the tune of $1,000,000 which, while it is a great boost, is only one quarter of the total cost to do the job.

So, how do we pay? And pay we will, one way or the other. The city simply does not have an extra $200,000 a year just sitting out there to make that payment.
