Mayor Wants Utilities to Help Pay for Failing Roads
The mayor of Altoona urged City Council Wednesday night to consider an ordinance that would require utility companies who make cuts into roadways responsible for completely repairing them.
Mayor Bill Schirf says it’s an idea currently under consideration in Lancaster and Pittsburgh. He says taxpayers often get stuck with the bill once the roadway’s integrity is compromised.
City leaders say their roadways are often dug up by utilities right after they are paved, further reducing its overall lifespan. Some members of council seemed supportive of the idea, but no official discussions have occurred.
