    What a waste!

  2. Zack Strap says:

    How many times does this city have to build/re do things for the city infrastructure? Fire department has its 3rd roof now in so few years. The 3rd time was because the city could not find the warranty information and it was paid for by tax payers.

    Now a new parking lot because of the way it was built or how it was engineered? What a god damn waste of money….

  3. Ron Mills says:

    Why isn’t this being put out for bids? Isn’t there a law about asking for bids after a certain dollar amount? And why isn’t the city engineering firm being held responsible for engineering things right? Are they going to engineer the new airport runway and the city taxpayers will be paying for a new runway every 10-15 years…The fire dept. is an essential part of the city-the airport is not. Why is a street supposed to last up to 75 years while a parking lot only lasts only 20? It is time to start asking our city leaders these same questions and not giving up until we get some answers!
