Dakota City continues street paving progress

Dakota City is moving forward with another round of street paving, according to Alyssa Silhacek, city administrator.

Thirteen blocks have been paved in 2017 and the Dakota City city council has authorized two additional districts to be paved, which equals out to approximately 11 blocks. Those districts are Cedar and Olive Streets starting at North Twelfth Street moving east to near the river.

A third district, approximately 1.5 blocks of North Sixth Street, has passed the first round of review for paving at the Oct. 5 city council meeting.

The Cedar and Olive Streets are anticipated to cost $1.8 million with 66 percent of the funds coming from General Obligation Costs and 34 percent coming from property owner assessments. North Sixth Street will cost an additional $268,450, if approved.

Residents can petition for pavement.

Dakota City is moving forward incrementally in paving the town and repairing its infrastructure.

“Over time, our community has grown, but paved roads and adequate storm drainage systems did not coincide with development,” Silhacek said. “Today, Dakota City is a community where over half of our roads are unpaved.”

Silhacek said it would cost about $20 million to pave the entire city.

“This is why it is not feasible for the City to pave all of our roads in a short time period,” she said. “Instead, a long-term, phased approach is necessary.”
