Money wasted on Strachan Road con­struc­tion

Medicine Hat News - - COMMENTS -

I was very dis­ap­pointed with the con­trac­tor re­do­ing Strachan Road this sum­mer, and also Spruce Way last year.

They tore up a per­fectly good road to redo it. Both these roads were in very good shape.

I be­lieve some man­agers are ad­vis­ing city coun­cil to do these so they will last an­other 20 years. These roads will last 20 years with­out be­ing done over.

I be­lieve these re­pairs are prob­a­bly cost­ing in the mil­lions of dol­lars as they are a cost-plus deal, for they take three to four months to com­pletely about four blocks of road. Let’s fire some man­agers and get some sav­ing on our taxes. There is so much waste.

Mayor and coun­cil­lors had bet­ter make some changes be­fore this fall elec­tion. We do not need money wasted for this fool­ish­ness.
