Upper Brookville previously delayed rebuilding and resurfacing roads until they were close to the end of their useful life and the only solution was costly reconstruction. In July 2016, the Board of Upper Brookville resolved to (a) repave the rest of the village’s roads at a cost of $2.3 million over two years, and (b) issue 15-year bonds to cover the cost. Issuing bonds would finance the repaving of all needy roads while lowering the annual road expense from $450,000 to $200,000 per year.
