Infrastructure Improvement Projects


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.
