City Pays Ohio Company $143k to Say Which Streets to Pave

I looked at this company's website and it seems like they do provide a genuine service.  However, let's be reasonable here.  This 14% of what the city is spending on roads for the entire year.  It's not like we're going to have the money to pave every road (unfortunately.)  Would the money not be better spent just focusing on the key roads that we can afford to repair?

The Wilmington City Council will consider awarding a contract for $142,905 with Transmap of Columbus, Ohio to conduct a pavement condition survey and create a database of traffic signs. The city last updated its survey of street conditions in 2005, leaving six years of potholes and degradation in need of tending.
And yes, it passed.
