Mayor Yaede Proposes Capital Budget for Needed Road Repairs, Sewer System Maintenance and Police Equipment
Through her 2014 proposed Capital Budget, Mayor Kelly Yaede is working to ensure that needed repairs and critical improvements are made to township roads, its sewer system and that Hamilton’s Police have the equipment they need to protect and serve.
The most significant portions of the plan, which must be approved by the Township Council, fund critically needed road and sewer system repairs. Mayor Yaede is calling for the repaving of 28 township roads, which will target portions of some of Hamilton’s most heavily-traveled roads, such as Whitehorse-Hamilton Square Road, Klockner Avenue, Mercer Street, Estates Boulevard, Groveville-Allentown Road and Paxson Avenue, as well as local roads in the Lalor Tract, Broad Street Park, Decou, White City/Forrest Valley, Bromley, Greenwood Terrace, Whitehead Manor, Mercerville, Hamilton Square, Olden Terrace, University Heights, Whitehorse and Extonville neighborhoods. Additionally, ADA (federal Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible sidewalk ramps and needed stormwater drainage projects will also be funded through the plan.
To maintain Hamilton’s sewer system, Yaede’s proposed Capital Budget will fund necessary sewer plant upgrades, the rehabilitation of the Yardville-Groveville Pump Station and the repair of several sewer lines.
“The residents of our community desire and deserve these critically needed road and sewer system repairs, which will continue to improve the quality of life for all of our residents,” explains Mayor Yaede.
And while the largest portions of the capital budget will fund needed road and sewer system repairs, the plan also dedicates a portion of funds to the needed replacement of police vehicles and replacement of the police radio system to address coverage issues, as well as critical recreational facility and equipment needs that will repair deteriorating public tennis courts at two township parks, make needed maintenance repairs at the township’s miniature golf course and replace needed township equipment and service vehicles.
