Street overhauling includes chip seals, microseals, and two-inch asphalt overlays. Most of this kind of work is completed by the City's Public Works staff. This was made possible when the City acquired an asphalt pull box in 1999. Additional street overhauling equipment that was purchased by the City includes:
A crack sealing unit (purchased in 2000)
A three-and-a-half-ton asphalt roller (purchased in 2001)
A tac / seal coat sprayer (purchased in 2002)
These kinds of repairs will increase the life of the street from seven to 10 years with routine preventative maintenance.
