City Council focuses on bumps and grinds

Fasten your seatbelts, San Diego. We may be in for a less bumpy ride – if the City Council gets its way.

The council voted unanimously Tuesday to create an infrastructure committee to work on smoothing the city’s rutted roads and walkways and repairing streetlights, libraries and recreation centers.

“I have heard the call of San Diegans that they are tired of driving over potholes and tripping over sidewalks,” said Council President Todd Gloria, who proposed the new committee.

The committee, chaired by Councilmember Mark Kersey with Sherri Lightner as vice chair, will focus on creating a five-year infrastructure program, including plans for streamlining the repair process and securing financing. The committee will also include Marti Emerald and Scott Sherman.

To balance against the cost of creating a new committee, the council agreed to Gloria’s proposal to merge several existing committees. Gloria also asked Lightner to conduct a six-month review of how well all the committees are functioning.
