Saint Paul doesn’t know how to pay to fix streets

The City of Saint Paul is clamoring for a new revenue source to pay for street maintenance after a court ruling said the city could use right of way assessments.

Jessie Van Berkel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

At a meeting Wednesday, Finance Director Todd Hurley said the city should use a mix of assessments and property taxes to cover street upkeep. But there was little consensus on the proposal, and some City Council members suggested the city should scrap its assessment program altogether.
