The City of Knox will be better able to control its asset management plan for streets thanks to a recent online training course. Street Superintendent Jeff Borg has completed PASER training. It’s an acronym for Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating system. It collects data about road conditions, which is used to make better decisions about when repairs are necessary. Borg told the Knox Board of Works last week the training will allow him to rate streets.
Borg also told the board street paving bids are out for summer projects. He’s also identified 126 street signs that need to be replaced. The signs and brackets will cost the city $3,200, with street department employees to do the labor.
