City beginning to think about our roads

City council has another one of its special meetings scheduled for Monday, April 17, 2017.

They generally deal with subjects that do not require public participation in the special meetings.  Said another way, they handle things that they do not want public input on.

In this case they will be given a presentation titled “Budget Overview” by city staff.

This is one of the slides from the presentation:

Notice that the progress they made this year is that they got permission to have their street inventory and assessment brought up to date.

That is a good idea.  Unfortunately it tells us that they are so far behind paving our streets that they don’t even know how bad the problem is.

We deserve better

    The city’s streets department has some new, shiny yellow trucks. The trouble is that you rarely see them. We apparently can afford new trucks for the department, but not the repairs.
