RE: Roads
By Joey Garcia


June 08, 2012

I agree with Zig Ziegler regarding the bumpy or unattended roads. Somebody please clarify to me the proposed proposition by the City of Ketchikan in bonds to convert this into road rehabilitation. Or where are the revenues of the City? Why can't local residents, or old timers, simply enjoy our own roads? Does it mean to say that the City simply does a grandstanding on innovating our ports and left off some portions due to lack of funds?

Are we to believe that the revenues cannot buy brand new computers for our Fire Department but rather get used ones donated by the Saxman tribes?

Funny how the City manages to fix roads at their gusto and forget Newtown areas. What about the uncultured meter maids along the strip of Washington parking issuing parking citations to handicapped persons? Is the City of Ketchikan now discriminating the handicap?
