Why does the city need a TBD now?

The City has about 126 road segments that are in failing or near failing condition because of insufficient revenue. Gas tax, sales tax, and other traditional “street revenues” have steadily declined to the point where we are faced with a sorely declining infrastructure and no way to pay for it. One tool the State has given cities is to create our own Transportation Benefit District to fund the repair and preservation of our roads.
