GOLIAD – The Goliad City Council unanimously approved Goliad Public Works Director Cindy Shilinga to solicit bids for for the fiscal year 2013 seal-coating project for selected city streets.

During Tuesday night's meeting, Shilinga told the council that approximately 60,000 square yards of streets have been targeted for seasl coating.

"It all depends on what the going price of seal coach per square yard is," Shilinga said. "We won't know until our bids come in. The price of materials is really high."

Shilinga said the department has targeted certain sections in the city where roads have deteriorated.

"We have spent many hours trying to figure out the best possible way to tackle seal coating each year," Shilinga said. "It's come to our attention that the last few years we have picked a street here, a street there. We've kind of been jumping around and it's hard to keep up with how we're seal coating the town. This year, we're trying to go to more of a systematic approach and make the town into sections and as needed. If there is a street in really bad need of repair, we'll tackle that one."

Shilinga said approximately 50,000 square yards were seal coated during the fiscal year 2012.

Councilman Vicki Rubio moved to approve the item and councilman Lionel Garcia seconded the motion.
