To the Street Department and the driver of sandtruck E2020: Yay! The residents of the 900 block of West Center thank you!
Trying to figure out why you paid your workers to "fix" opal st a year ago? Filling the huge holes, well half the road with dirt and gravel didnt really work considering opal is right under a mountain that always causes flooding. So when can we expect this road to actually be paved and fixed??
Thank you for being so on top of the plowing these last few storms! 👍🏻👍🏻
I was unaware that there was a page that showcased all the roadwork that gets done in our town. I'm actually impressed.
Is garbage pickup been delayed a day??
Micro seal notification states that you'll be dealing with our streets on Tuesday, July 18. Also indicates no garbage containers are allowed on the street. Since July 18 is our streets garbage day, would you like our garbage/recycling out that Monday or Wednesday?
Is the paving on Balsam ever going to be finished??
