Since Amelia Buragas wants brick streets funding and newly elected alderman Jenn Carrillo posted this today:
I think a review of the cost needs to be made.
Brick Streets Master Plan: http://www.cityblm.org/Home/ShowDocument?id=9107
There are 3.5 miles of brick streets out of 320 miles of streets in the city, which is 1.1% of all streets. PDF page 3. (Hasn’t Tari recently been claiming there are many more miles than 320?)

Hey Amelia and Jenn:
I’d love to hear how you justify spending more than 4 times as much on brick streets when a lot of the other 320 miles of roads are barely drivable!
Do the people who live on brick streets pay 4 times more taxes to the City? Do they never drive on the non-brick streets?
Jenn: What are you going to cut to fix the brick streets?
