CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Fixing the road damage that winter left behind was a hot topic at Monday night's Charleston City Council meeting.
Council members approved a new agreement for street paving. They say this past winter alone, they spent more than $1.3 million on road repairs -- and they could have spent considerably more.
"We could have used $3 million in paving this year, but we didn't have the funds, so we are doing more than last year and still could use more after a winter like this," City Manager David Molgaard said.
Council members say they spent $500,000 more for this year's paving than they did for last year.
