Some La Mesa streets will be getting repaved, as the council will move to approve awarding a bid to American Asphalt South, Inc., for the purpose of maintaining streets, sealing cracks, and applying rubberized slurry coating to various streets around the city, as part of the city's pavement maintenence program. The company was the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. The contract amount for the year is for about $645,000.
