Mayor Jean Stothert will continue Town Hall meetings in March and April to present “A Roadmap to Better Streets”.

Mayor Stothert recommended and the Omaha City Council unanimously approved placing a $200 million bond issue on the May 12 primary ballot to fund a pavement maintenance program.

The Town Hall series will provide an overview of street infrastructure needs, what is needed to make long-term sustainable improvements, and options to pay for it. This is the second series of public meetings to explain the need for a bond issue.

“The condition of our streets is a top priority for me and for our taxpayers and I look forward to listening and answering questions,” said Mayor Stothert.  “If voters approve the bond, we will begin work this summer.”
