Like most residents, I have concerns and questions about potholes and road maintenance.
Would a thicker asphalt layer or better foundational work reduce potholes in the long run? Would it save money? think we deserve a clear explanation of why our pothole problem seems more severe than other northern cities’.
Could we schedule road closures and repair work to cause less inconvenience? Again, if we can’t, more public explanation of the obstacles is needed.
I’ll investigate these questions and produce answers. In the meantime, the best solution to pothole management, along with many other municipal problems, is for the province to pay its fair share! [See: Taxes on Provincial Property.]
