Breakfast with the Mayor: ‘The city is moving forward’
Thursday, September 21, 2023
Mayor Tom Weidt recently provided an update on infrastructure improvements, city initiatives, community development and public safety at the annual Breakfast with the Mayor event, hosted by the Hugo Business Association (HBA).
“It was really a summer that was concentrated on road issues, road repair and road conditions. Most of you can see in your own neighborhoods … it was a horrible winter, it got warm and cold and warm and cold and it really did a number on the roads in Hugo,” Weidt said. “We’ve been concentrating a lot on how to get those fixed and budgeting for that.”
The city recently revisited its capital improvement plan (CIP), which plans out street projects for the next five years. Each year, the city’s Public Works Department evaluates each of the roadways and their condition. The city of Hugo will need to complete an estimated $14 million of projects in the next five years.
