I have detoured all over town during the street repairs that have plagued us for the past year and a half now but this notice I just received that the only street accessing my business parking lot is just too much. My patience is gone and I am writing to complain.

First we endured the reconstruction of 164th Street between Penn and May. That is one of the major arteries in town. The repairs went on for six months or more which seemed excessive.

Then there was 158th between Roscoe and Jones. That renovation lasted eight months. Four other locations followed and oddly, there are still pock marks and potholes in the repaired areas.

I think the city should take a look at this project. Whoever is making the decisions and heading up the construction doesn’t seem very capable.

I pay pretty heavy taxes living here and I want to see that money designated for road repair is used correctly which means the streets are done effectively and efficiently.

Please consider the citizens of this town. The general consensus is we are all tired of this haphazard work and inconvenience.

Thank you for listening.
