Speak Out: POT HOLES

Posted by Greg Illers on Fri, Jun 7, 2019, at 8:18 AM:

There are also holes where the blacktop has come off the previous concrete road bed that will jar your car also and one of these is on the hilltop before you get to the Chateau. This one has been there for weeks.

  • Seems to be a pattern, build a new concrete road that doesn't last and then cover it with asphalt that won't stick. Then make sure any repair is front and center so everyone can see tax money at work. If only they had more tax money more work could be done!

  • More money for good , long lasting roads , and less money for aquatic centers nobody knows where it's going to be built or how much it will cost ...People could have flat tires from those pot holes while driving around aimlessly trying to find their way to a new swimming pool that hasn't been determined where it's going to be built .

    Makes perfect sense...

    Has anyone actually seen this thing working? Looks like a follow up story should be done.

    Rock: Thanks for bringing this up had forgotten about it. If the machine was delivered in early February where has it been hiding all this time. Maybe it fell into a giant pothole and can't get out.
