|Puddles after 4 days of Sun Shine on 101st Ave|
Today I walked around town enjoying the sun while inspecting the condition of the roads in Stanwood north of Rt 532 that are scheduled for repair and drainage improvement. While Stanwood had been rain free for several days there were still large puddles along several roads. Obviously they need better drainage.
There were also many large cracks that will only get larger. As you can see in the photo above the lovely traditional Stanwood homes were crisply painted but the crack in the road makes the neighborhood look run down. The longer we put off repairing those cracks the larger they will become and the more it will cost to fill them in.
Even though I prefer walking on gravel paths, I suspect most of my neighbors want to drive to work and send their kids to school on relatively smooth roads. So I voted for the tax to protect my property value.
Our ballots are due in by February 12, 2013.
