    The Pima County Board of Supervisors Nov. 5 unanimously approved spending $27 million of the unreserved fund balance from last fiscal year on pavement repair and rehabilitation, improvements to county facilities, and County parks repair and updates.

    The board allocated $10 million for local road repair in the unincorporated county. About $2 million of the funding will be spent in each Supervisor’s district. The added funding brings the current fiscal year support for road repair and preservation in the unincorporated areas to $36 million. The added funding will pay for repairs of more than 42 additional miles of local roads, bringing the total miles of roadway to be repaired in fiscal year 2020 to 160 miles.

    The Board earmarked $15 million for badly-needed upgrades to several County buildings in downtown Tucson, including the Legal Services Building, 32 N. Stone Ave., and the two administration buildings located at 130 W. Congress St. and 150 W. Congress St.
     
    All three require façade repair and the 130 W. Congress building needs asbestos removal and fire safety and suppression systems installed on four floors.

    An additional $2 million will go to Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation to be invested into the aging parks system; urban park amenities; buildings, structures and natural resource parks; and into pavement preservation at several parks.

    Specifically, funds will benefit:
