Keller City Council approved a $110,917 contract with consulting firm IMS Infrastructure Management Services at its Dec. 17 meeting.
IMS Infrastructure Management Services will be assessing street conditions throughout the city. Its findings will be used to develop a "five-year capital improvement plan for streets requiring heavy maintenance or reconstruction,” according to meeting documents. The city has contracted IMS Infrastructure Management Services for similar work in 2005, 2010 and 2015.
The company’s staff will drive city roads with equipment and submit a final report, according to meeting documents.
The project will be funded by sales tax dollars as the city allocates a portion of its sales tax rate to street maintenance, Keller City Manager Mark Hafner said.
