NC Council to look at Broad Street paving, big budget deficit Wednesday

Nevada City officials want to move forward with the project to re-pave Broad Street before the Amgen Tour of California, although the city and its street improvement fund are in the red.

The recommendation is part of an annual report on Measure S funding to be presented at the Nevada City Council meeting 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall, 317 Broad St.

Staff is planning on spending less on the Measure S paving this year, but still wants to use federal stimulus money and other grants to pave Broad Street before the May 16 race, pending weather, City Engineer William Falconi wrote in a memo to the council.

Also on Wednesday’s agenda is an update on the city’s troubled $4.2 million budget. The city is trying to cut $178,000 out of the budget with changes in personnel and reductions in the police, planning department and city manager’s budgets, though the specifics will not be presented until the Feb. 24, meeting, Finance Director Catrina Andes wrote in a memo to the council.
