Street and Alley Paving

Street and alley paving in the 15th Ward will begin in July. The Street Dept. evaluates the condition of our alleys and streets. Approximately 17 of the worst alleys and streets are then paved each year. A couple of blocks along Utah Place will not be paved (a decision made by a concensus of the neighbors). Most of the alleys in our ward have been paved. This year’s list for paving include: Fairview Miami Oleatha Gravois Tholozan Chippewa Keokuk Alberta Winnebago Please call me if you have any questions or feel that your street or alley need attention. 622-3763
