The City’s Utility Undergrounding Master Plan is an exorbitantly expensive beautification project (estimated to cost $33+ million dollars of public funds), proposes to create “assessment districts” (with related homeowner assessments), and is limited in scope favoring only the highest priority areas comprised of a few streets in town (while ignoring the rest of the city including all alleys).

When utility undergrounding was discussed and voted upon at the last City Council meeting, Councilman Sandke said he was “bummed that no one came to the council meeting to voice their opinion,” and Councilman Benzian said, “I actually haven’t talked to one person who doesn’t support it.”

To demonstrate to our City Council that there is opposition to utility undergrounding, please sign the petition below encouraging Council to abort the Utility Undergrounding Master Plan Implementation and look into better ways to spend public funds.
