SELMA STREET MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR

Most recently, the street maintenance and repair taxes were used to help fund the Ventura Boulevard and Arcadia Dr. reconstruction project, as well as road improvements in Forest Creek, Olympia Hills, Retama Springs, and Kensington Ranch Subdivisions. This sales and use tax is anticipated to help fund future repairs/improvements to Evans Road.
