Getting Serious About Paving Streets


We have neglected our infrastructure maintenance for too long, and streets are a good example.

According to Morro Bay's Public Works Department in a report issues June 2016, "our roads are failing faster than we can repair them with our current resources."  Current primary funding sources from the City's Measure Q (a 1/2 cent sales tax passed in 2006) and gas tax revenue are not enough to sustain adquate quality.  I support Measure J, which will be on the ballot in November, and would make San Luis Obispo County a "Self-Help" County.  The measure would bring over 5 million dollars to Morro Bay over the next nine years (when the measure would sunset) to repair streets and support other transportation-related projects.  Even if the measure passes, that is not enough money to bring Morro Bay's streets up to acceptable levels that can be maintained.  I will work to direct more revenue into a dedicated street repair fund while we simultaneously explore long-term funding options.  This will be especially important if Measure J does not pass.
