City publishes preliminary 5-year plan in the event Proposition 411 passes

Proposition 411, an initiative before Yuma voters this November, would raise money that could only be used to fix City streets. If passed, it would legally require funds raised to be dedicated solely to asphalt replacement, patching potholes, and roadway maintenance. The map on this link illustrates a preliminary 5-year plan where Proposition 411 funds would be used.

Proposition 411 mandates that its funds cannot be spent on any use other than fixing streets. Furthermore, the City will account for these funds separately: If Proposition 411, passes the City will maintain a separate web page to track Prop 411 funds to ensure transparency, similar to how the City publishes its complete Capital Improvement Program.
