Defi­ance plans on spend­ing less than $200,000 this year to resur­face city streets.

Actu­ally, the city plans to use just $179,529 in cap­i­tal improve­ments fund money to resur­face parts of nine streets.

A resur­fac­ing con­tract has not been autho­rized yet by city coun­cil, and some coun­cil mem­bers believe that much more needs to be spent.

For instance, one esti­matte to rebuild Col­lege Place alone — from Web­ster to North Clin­ton streets, came in at around $750,000.

Some are say­ing that $1-$1.2 mil­lion would need to be spent every year for 20 years to bring all streets into top shape.
