City should contract out for street work

Advertisement

It is time the city of Walla Walla’s Street Division close down. The city should contract out all street repair so if the work isn’t done right the city can make the contractors fix it again.

I used to go down Pleasant Street to go home but my Mini Cooper bottoms out on the so-called patch repair. It would have been better if the city work crews had done nothing. Now we have four to five speed bumps on Pleasant Street.

Also the tar and sand work does not work. Where they have done this it has already separated and weeds are coming up.

Please shut them down before they do any more damage.

A quick look at http://www.gowallawalla.us/downloads/Pleasant.pdf shows this project was awarded Culbert Construction for $1.7 million. Which means, yes it was contracted out.

It is only a temporary patch job, done with temporary materials.... The whole street will be re-done with the permanent Asphalt. They will wait until the water lines are complete and do it all at one time.
