The proposed Kansas City budget throws a lot more money at fixing up the city's roads.
The 2019-20 budget, totaling more than $1.7 billion, was presented Thursday to the city council. It includes a 70 percent increase for road resurfacing — from $10 million to $17 million.
City Manager Troy Schulte says that is a new consideration.
“Given that we're being besieged with pothole requests, that’s a direct result of that,” Schulte said.
The budget won’t be adopted until March – so that extra cash won’t help fix current potholes.
