Mayor Bach is asking for $1.3 billion to make repairs and upgrades in Colorado Springs. He took media on a tour to show them the areas he says need attention.
The mayor said the city has outgrown its busiest substation, Sand Creek, located on the southeast side of the city. They also reportedly need to replace some police vehicles.
Another area of concern is at the intersection of Chelton and Santa Rosa near Platte Avenue. The area is prone to flooding, and the mayor wants to install a million dollars worth of storm drainage to deal with the problem.
A city spokesperson says they want to take the city council on a tour to show them firsthand what needs to be done.
How to pay for the repairs and upgrades has yet to be determined.
