Help coming for residential roads

Lawton_Help may be coming for your neighborhood roads. Tuesday, the Lawton City Council proposed a sales tax extension to collect 28 million dollars from taxpayers, starting January 2008.  If voters approve it during the election in October, 36 percent of the collected money, approximately $10 million, would go toward residential road reconstruction and improvement.

The council asked Public Works Director Jerry Ihler to make a list of roads across the city that need improvement. The council will then divide the money between each of the eight wards, and then each council member will have to decide which of their roads get how much improvement with their allotted money. Ihler estimates it will cost $10,000 per block for minor road repairs and then an asphalt overlay.
