The city's infrastructure committee began its push Friday to educate residents about repairs to the city's aging network of sewers, streets and sidewalks--and the accompanying cost.

The committee agreed to ask the City Council to hire consultants to devise a way to inform the public about the need to spend $1.3 billion over the next 20 years on the repairs.

With only part of the work covered by city, state and federal funds, residents will bear a heavy financial burden, either through taxes, fees or assessments, according to the committee.

The council will review the committee's request Tuesday, city consultant Gary Dysart said.
