City Council will vote on city infrastructure plan

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego City Council will put the mayor’s "ReBuild San Diego" plan in the hands of the voters after all.

Mayor Faulconer and Councilman Mark Kersey presented their plan during a press conference Monday.

And on Tuesday, the city council decided to put the plan on the ballot.

It includes repaving roads, rebuilding police and fire stations and replacing aging storm drains.

The price tag for "ReBuild San Diego" is between $4 and $5 billion over the next 30 years and it would not raise taxes.

"Today was a huge step in our efforts to ensure our neighborhoods get the long-needed repairs and upgrades they deserve," said Councilman Mark Kersey. "Infrastructure is the biggest issue facing San Diego. The Rebuild San Diego measure will give us the certainty of resources necessary to build a high-capacity 21st Century infrastructure investment program," Councilman Mark Kersey said.
