Mayor discusses future city improvement ideas

Local News

If you’ve driven around the city of Wichita Falls, you know some of the city’s streets are in desperate need of repair. 

Mayor Stephan Santellana and city councilors met Wednesday to set priorities and discuss future ideas on how to improve the city. 

Santellana said the biggest complaints he receives are about road conditions. He said the process of gathering funds is still in its early stages, but the city council has some proposals. 

“A street maintenance fee or something in that regard is something that’s small that we can attach to all users lets say instead of just property owners seems to be a feasible route we might take,” Santellana said. 

Santellana said the fee would be addressed with more of a bracket approach rather than a blanket one. 

This means people over the age of 65 might pay a different amount versus someone who is younger.

Corporations would also have their own unique rate.
