Good towns have good streets. At least that’s the mantra Rosenberg Mayor Bill Benton subscribes to.

So when council members discussed a million dollar street overlay project, paying to clean up the streets was a no-brainer. And the best part? It’s only going to cost the city a fraction of that.

At Tuesday’s workshop meeting, council members reviewed 29 proposed street sections to be repaved.

The 2021 fiscal year budget includes $1,050,000 for road reconstruction.

According to city Public Works Director Rigo Calzoncin, overlaying or reconstructing the 29 street sections is estimated to cost $718,368.

All of the material, labor, and equipment costs are based on current bids. If approved at the next regular Rosenberg City Council meeting, the city will receive assistance from Fort Bend County Road and Bridge to perform the work.

The county would provide the labor and the equipment and the city would provide the material.

According to City Manager John Maresh, these projects would be completed by the end of spring 2022.

“It speaks volumes when we are spending near $1 million to fix our streets,” council member Kevin Raines said.

“Good towns have good streets,” Benton replied.
