A public hearing regarding the City of Langley’s $8.2 million preliminary budget for 2018 went without comment at the city council’s regular monthly meeting on Nov. 20.

Road projects, including a revamp of First Street, total $1.9 million. The improvements to First Street will include wider sidewalks, repaving, raised pedestrian crosswalks and bike racks. The street’s sidewalk will also be overhauled with bioretention cells and underground infiltration facilities.

Other upgrades to roads include a milling and repaving of DeBruyn Avenue, repaving and extruded curbing on Second Street and repaving and milling on Third Street and Park Avenue.

The city’s overall budget is up from $6.5 million in 2017 mostly because of a large influx in state funding, with a general fund of about $1.7 million. Taxes fund a majority of the general fund and a 2 percent increase to utilities is projected for 2018.

Several infrastructure improvements are also planned, including replacements for the sewer pump station, a sewer line and water main.

The city council met on Tuesday, Nov. 27, for a three-hour workshop regarding the development of the budget.
