What will you do to fund the repair and improvement of roads and other infrastructure in our district and how will you prioritize them?

LCG already has a fair system in place for determining which roads are in the most need of repair and are to be included in the overlay list. This process is completed every other year, where they assess every road and rate them based on different factors; they are then placed in order of need. I work with Public Works' roads division on the roads in my district and make sure that the work is being completed. Many roads in Lafayette have not been approved by LCG to be taken over by the city due to various reasons, and I plan to continue to work with developers and HOAs to make sure those roads are brought up to standard so we can start maintaining them. Finally, I report potholes that I encounter while traveling around town to be repaired.

I think we need to prioritize the high traffic roads. The roads with the most traffic are the ones that get damaged the most from the high volume of traffic on them. Other roads should be prioritized on the severity of the damage to the infrastructure. I believe we need to look at the budget and find the money that can be moved from other locations in the budget in order to improve our infrastructure. No new taxes.
