The CIP and SIP are primarily funded from the City’s General Fund.  This means revenue generated from property taxes and sales tax primarily fund these programs.  On average, the City General Fund allocates approximately $1.1 Million per year into the street budget.  About $600,000 of that amount goes towards the adopted 5 year CIP streets and the remaining $500,000 goes towards the SIP Program.

The Street Maintenance Fee is a separate user fee that goes on utility bills and the revenue collected (~$500,000) is applied towards the annual SIP Program to double the effort of spending $1 Million towards street maintenance.  Reports of how those funds are specifically allocated are found in the Street Maintenance Fee report that is produced annually on this page.
