If Humboldt voters approve a half-cent sales tax to fund a 10-year street improvement project, Allen County will help with reconstruction.
Mayor Nobby Davis told commissioners Tuesday the consensus was that hard-surfaced, asphalt streets would be a better approach to improvement than chip-and-seal. To accomplish that he asked the county to help by grinding away street surfaces with its reclaimer, a machine designed to gnaw up asphalt. County crews then would shape the streets and provide some base rock.
“We felt we needed to do something,” Davis said. “Our streets are under the weather.”
