A proposal for funding three proposed traffic roundabouts will be discussed at tonight’s Hays city commission meeting.
Commissioners will consider a recommended charter ordinance to increase the Transient Guest Tax (TGT) rate to 7% from 5% to fund the improvements in the north Vine Street corridor. Costs are estimated at $7.6 million.
If constructed, the roundabouts are expected to significantly improve accessibility for visitors, residents, and pedestrians; improve safety; and keep the area economically viable.
There are three agenda items regarding bid awards.
- Repainting the exteriors of both water towers
- Extension of water service on East 27th Street to be funded by the five customers requesting service
- Site work and concrete slab at the new Fire/Rescue Training Facility south of the Waste Water Treatment Plant
The complete June 14 agenda can be seen here.
The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in Hays City Hall, 1507 Main.
