Nashua aldermen asked to prioritize paving needs
“I’m telling you, the paving situation in this city is so bad we could spend $2 million on it right away,” Lozeau told the aldermanic Budget Review Committee on Thursday.
Although the establishment of the fund would reduce the general fund revenue by $2 million, Lozeau said earlier that it is an ideal way to address long-term road infrastructure needs.
“I think this is a really good solution,” she said previously.
While some people have argued her proposal is a way to avoid the city’s spending cap, Lozeau stressed that both of the revenue sources — the motor vehicle permit fees and the highway block grant — are each user fees and are both allowed to be used toward special revenue funds.
Another wrap-up session by the committee has been scheduled for 7 p.m. on Monday at Nashua City Hall.
