That's no longer the case, he said.
"It used to be that the only times streets were paved was when we had elections," he said. "But that's not how it's done now."
Reishman, who has served about 13 years on council, is chairman of the Finance Committee. He does not have any streets on this summer's paving list.
Another prominent councilman, Edward Talkington, also does not have any streets on the list.
Talkington is a Democrat who represents a ward on the city's West Side. He has served on council since 1999. He also sits on the Finance Committee and is chairman of the Environmental and Recycling Committee.
Talkington said he had no problem with the fact that no streets in his ward will be paved this year.
"I may not have any on the list this time, but I could have next year," he said.
The streets in Talkington's West Side ward are not in dire need of repair. A large section of his ward is flat and little salt is used to melt ice in the winter, Talkington said.
Talkington believes just about every street in his ward has been paved since the user fee was initiated in 2003.
"You can't expect to have paving spread out through all 21 wards every year," he said.
Before the user fee was initiated, some streets went as long as 30 years without being paved.
"I had a street in my ward that wasn't paved in 30 to 35 years," Talkington said. "It was a concrete street, and those last a lot longer, but that's way too long."
Over half a mile, 3,310 feet, of Virginia Street East in the downtown area from the Elk River to McFarland Street will be repaved this summer, according to the list.
The street likely will be paved at the end of the season, Hayson said. The paving will be done at night to keep from disrupting traffic as much as possible, he said.
