Street Bond Information Sessions

Proposition Streets will be on the April ballot for City of Hermann voters. The City will hold two public information sessions to present the facts and figures and how they impact the future.

The two sessions will be held on Monday, February 25, and Monday, March 25.  The sessions will be held at 6:00 p.m. each evening. Presenters will be Mark Wallace, City Administrator; Wayne Bruckerhoff, Public Works Director; and, Todd Lensing, Street Supervisor.

“We want to give the voters in the City of Hermann the facts and figures of how this street bond will help our city,” stated Mark Wallace, City Administrator.  “When voters go to the poles on April 2, they will decide the future of Hermann streets.”

The Hermann Board of Alderman have heard many complaints about street issues from their constituents.  Realizing the lack of funding in the street department budget for proper short-term and long-term street improvement, repairs and maintenance, the board unanimously voted to place the proposition on the April 2, 2019 ballot.

The proposed street bond is a potential long-term, 20-year solution, which will be solely used for street improvements, repairs and maintenance.

Todd Lensing, Street Supervisor, said, “Our current budget only allows us to mill and overlay three to four blockseach year. That is not sustainable for the future of Hermann.”

The information sessions will be held prior to the Board of Alderman meetings which begin at 7:00 p.m.
