The seal coating of streets in the Isom Addition is set to begin on July 12.
Doug Tipton, who is the Street Superintendent for the City of Borger, said this program is used to extend the life of street pavement.
â€śWe try to seal each street every five years, but we fell way behind in the past and we are trying to catch up,â€ť he said.
In order to make the program work as successfully as it can, Tipton said it is important that people keep their vehicles off the street during the application of the asphalt and rock.
