Jacksboro City Council talks streets

Jacksboro city officials are continuing to look into how to fix the city’s streets.

Several months ago, the city submitted a request for a proposal (RFP) to see how much improving all the curbs, gutters, streetlights, sidewalks and infrastructure would cost in the face of a possible bond issuance.

City Manager Mike Smith told council members during their Nov. 18 meeting there are potentially two cheaper alternatives to fix the streets over a three-to-five-year period. Alderman Joe Mitchell said the city does not need an RFP to know its streets are bad.

The alternatives include P2, which the city has used on some of its streets already during a recent Community Development Block Grant project, or a Lithify technology, which company officials said they could help city workers put down.

Smith said he would like to take a trip to Tucumcari, N.M. to see how the Lithify technology worked on real streets before making a decision. Tucumcari is one city that has used the technology.

Smith said it would be sometime this Spring before a decision is made on which project to use.
