Street, sidewalk, stormwater, and public sewer improvement projects are ongoing within the City of Oskaloosa. These capital improvement projects are budgeted through road improvement funds, tax revenues, and/or user fees. At the beginning of each year, the Public Works Department prioritizes the City’s infrastructure needs and prepares a plan for review by the City Council. Once approved, projects are typically designed, bid out to, and completed by local contractors. Whether in the design, construction, or clean-up phases, the City is continually improving its infrastructure for the benefit of public health and safety.
In addition to capital improvement projects, the City has a pavement maintenance program through which road work is completed each year based on budgeting through federal funds and City tax revenues. These projects improve the driving condition of roads.
