Mayor Strickland Announces $500 Million Plan to Fix All the Potholes
$500 million raised over 10 years at $50 million per year. That's what Mayor Strickland proposed in her State of the City address yesterday to fix potholes on Tacoma streets.
Strickland says the ballot measure to repair Tacoma streets will fix all of them, but official details of the plan haven't been rolled out yet.
The Mayor's proposal will go to voters in November, two years after a smaller proposal was voted down. That proposal would have added 2% to utility earnings, raising just $10 to $11 million annually. There's no word yet on whether the new plan is going to focus again on utilities or look elsewhere to raise five times that amount.
What would you be willing to pay to fix all the potholes?
