Jackson is planning to take out $10 million in bonds to repave streets.
But city officials say residents shouldn’t expect to see as much immediate paving as they did when a $23 million bond was issued in 2009.
The bond would cover repaving for several years, and be used to leverage federal and state funds for larger road projects, said Director of Communications Chris Mims.
