It would be ideal to replace aging and deteriorating infrastructure before you pave a street.  However, the City has approximately $7 million budgeted for utility replacement for the 5 Year CIP (2019-2023).  Based on this 5 Year CIP, that amount of funding puts the City on a 165 year replacement cycle for water and 235 year replacement cycle for sewer.  Streets cannot wait that long to be paved.
