New Orleans spends a fraction of what it needs to on street maintenance, group says

The city of New Orleans only spends an average of $3.8 million annually on street maintenance tasks like pothole repairs — a fraction of the $30 million to $35 million officials say they need to cover the costs of maintaining the city’s roads, according to a new report from a private, nonpartisan research group. The good news, according to The Bureau of Governmental Research report, “Paying for Streets: Options for Funding Road Maintenance in New Orleans,” is that New Orleans has money for streets coming its way.
