Key Initiatives

In alignment with the City Strategic Plan and 2030 Comprehensive Plan, continue increasing level of

service for the Drainage Assistance program in FY 2017. The program will also continue to evaluate ways

for expediting construction of small drainage repair projects through the use of unit price/on-call

construction agreements across multiple small-scale drainage repair categories. The projects will include

minor CIP stormwater projects, private petition issues and point-repair stormwater maintenance and right-

of-way drainage issues.
