During the meeting, Fort Payne City Councilwoman Lynn Brewer made a comment about why Gault Avenue is not on the paving list. She wanted the public to know that the city is not responsible for the paving of Gault Avenue.

Fort Payne City Attorney Rocky Watson supported Brewer’s statement and clarified why it’s true that the city is not responsible for paving Gault Avenue.

“Just to clarify, not only is Gault Avenue not the city’s responsibility, but [the city] couldn’t pave it even if [the city] wanted to because that is a federal highway,” he said.

Grand total cost for line striping: $9,488

Grand total cost: $547,748.80

Fort Payne Public Works Director Tim Williams said the average cost for paving is $70,000 a mile. He said paving requires 14 city employees and employee pay is not included in the $70,000 average.
