This city is totally out of control, here is a perfect example why the city should not be providing services like Road maintenance, Every few months the city employee’s for the road maintenance department come through our neighborhood and “Fix the roads”, Not fixing is more like it. The tax payers foot the bill for this kind of ineptitude, all the repairs should be taken care of on an open to the private sector bid basis and we would get better roads and service for a lot less money than we are paying now.
There is a complete lack of leadership in this city that allows them to perform on this level. There is no supervision what so ever, they are lazy and incompetent.
I could put up many picture,- but they would all be the same as these. So no sense in being repetitive.

They are not going to properly fix these 30+ year old roads until a descion is made about water and sewer expansion. It is definitely poor govt. leadership from 10 years ago. The descion to patch and fill is inconvenient but smart.

If you were in charge you would make the same conclusion. Concrete Roads are meant to be good for 30 years. At a cost of $500k per mile. You would not spend that money and then go back and put in water and sewer.

Look to SE and SW for our expensive future.

That is not the point.
The point is that the last time I saw the truck go through the neighborhood three people were in it joy riding on the taxpayers dime. If you take in to account the salaries of these individuals and the cost of the truck plus fuel and other operating expenses it is a lot of money thrown out the window.
Not repaving the roads until utilities are in is fine, but at least if they have these bum's going around getting paid to do a job they should be doing it right, not this kind of crap.
The pictures say it all they don't even fix a hole when they do stop, the leave half behind.
This would not happen if the work was fone by the private sector, no one in the private sector would accept on the job performance like this, the only get away with it because they work for the city and are bot supervised. Not only are we paying these individuals to not do their job, but also the supervisor of these people and I know that he/she makes a lot more money then the one's that are riding around in the truck.
It is a disgrace that this city wastes the publics money like this at anytime, let alone during this time.
Their wages have gone up and their benefits go up all the time.
How many people in the private sector can say that over the last four years.

If this is directed to me, no thanks I think it is more productive to keep at this on the net. You reach many more people this way. But you go getem Tiger
At the council meeting nothing productive ever gets done, just look at their latest advertising campaign to bring business here. Billboards next to the road in Lee County to attract outside business.
Brilliant isn't it.
It says it all about the local government here completely inept. they didn't learn anything from the last election so It will be time to VOTE THEM OUT AGAIN NEXT TIME AROUND. THEY JUST DON'T LEARN this crowd is exactly the same as the last.
