Why doesn't the City do more complete road repairs rather than simply patching the potholes?

Due to budget restrictions, the City of Chowchilla cannot always do complete street reconstruction. The City has been maintaining City streets using a chip seal procedure. In most cases, reconstruction costs approximately five times more than chip sealing. Filling potholes can prevent further deterioration of a street until such time reconstruction can be accomplished.
