Rochester Mayor Tom Richards wants the city to borrow approximately $29 million for major infrastructure and capital projects that were planned for future years. Richards wants to do the borrowing now while the interest rates are so low.

The money would be used for to finish construction on Manhattan Square Park, to repair hazardous sidewalks, to make major road enhancements to Thurston Road and Portland Avenue, to increase the pace of demolition of vacant and deteriorated buildings, and other projects.

City Council should vote on the legislation this month.
