The board also voted on a $129,255 seal coating program with Tri City Blacktop.
Other items on the agenda included new language in the city's driving ordinance to allow the city to designate certain intersections as "right turn only" and an update to the city's abandoned vehicle policy that would put a 48-hour limit on abandoned vehicles, regardless of weather conditions.
