Recommendation: Council consider the <br />recommendations and options of the Road Committee and consider placing the ½ cent sales <br />tax measure on the ballot in the near future for funding of the desired option(s). <br /> <br />Mr. Wright gave a brief overview of the scope of the Road Committee work. During the process <br />the road standards were reviewed with staff. The project was downsized to focus on a "backbone" <br />road system which the Committee felt served most of the primary neighborhoods within the <br />community and were also utilized by visitors. The "backbone" map should be amended to reflect <br />Glenshire Drive to the Town limits and East River Street should be removed. Dearfield would go <br />to the Super 8 and Coldstream would go into the commemial area where there was significant truffle. <br />The Committee also set a timetable for actual improvements. Funds used first would complete the <br />"backbone" and if at, er that repair was completed, additional funds could be used for the balance <br />of the road system. <br /> <br />Members of the Committee made the following individual comments: <br /> <br />support by several members for a sunset clause. <br />existing section of Hwy. 267 from the by-pass had been excluded from the plan but would <br />become a part of the Truckee road system and would have to be maintained. <br />concern that if the measure did not pass in November it would never pass. <br />if all roads were up to par the annual maintenance costs would be slightly over $1 million. <br />concern that Council would try to create equity with TSSA's. <br /> <br /> <br />
