City streets to receive a facelift

The City of Ennis announced Monday a plan to improve several city streets through a bond program consisting of certificates of obligation coming from existing Industrial Tax Abatement revenues that roll off during the next 10 to 15 years.
What this means for Ennis’ drivers is the streets they feel are the most torn up and dangerous to travel on should get a makeover in the following 10 years.
A draft list of 83 prospective streets was released to the commissioners totaling 21.64 miles of streets would cost about $29.1 million to improve. Each ward is set to receive the same amount of funding for street improvements but a list prioritizing the streets in oder of the most need would be made up of City Commission input and public hearings for residents to give their opinions.
We urge citizens in the coming months to contact city officials and your commissioner to let them know what your opinion is regarding the prioritization of the list of prospective streets. This is your opportunity to have a say in what takes place in your city.
It is no secret the roadways in Ennis need some work here and there. We applaud the city for finding a way to improve these streets for its citizens without having to increase the tax rate.
For a full list of streets considered for improvement contact City Hall to receive a copy of the draft list, go to the City of Ennis website or check out the Dec. 19 edition of the Ennis Daily News to get the full story.
