Livingston’s Carr Avenue subdivision and surrounding streets will hopefully be getting paved in the near future.
The board of Mayor and Aldermen have voted to begin taking measurements in preparation of tarring and chipping the streets.
Alderman Kelly Coleman said the roads in that area deserve better improvements than just tar and chip.
“I agree that oil and chip would be a band-aid,” Coleman said. “I heard from every single one of those people in that neighborhood. Every single street in this town should have equally high quality roads to drive on. Those folks over there deserve the same street that’s in my neighborhood.”
According to Coleman, paving the streets in that area would cost more than $280,000, but the city simply can’t afford that amount at the current time.
Aldermen will meet next month to vote on tar and chip the roadways in the area. In the meantime, aldermen have granted the street department authority to begin taking measurements for the project.
