It’s good news, but I hope it’s done to a proper standard, because usually everything breaks up again after a very short time.

Good news. Yet, as almost always the favored and influential will have sidewalks and streets improved at or near their properties placed high on the list of these projects.

We are in crisis and this works can wait another year so we don’t have to borrow money to do it. Let’s do thing responsibly.
