Neglecting our roads
Ken's point that roads is our top transportation priority ties back to this MPO survey he mentions which was done after the 2010 rail referendum was defeated.
We will note too that our local infrastructure tax, the half-cent Community Investment Tax (CIT) was to be used for road improvements over the 30 year term of the tax which expires in 2026. That money was borrowed against and all spent by 2007 so there is no CIT tax money available today for roads or anything else.
Today we have so many F-rated roads.

We see the Feds and the State doing their part as they improve the major arteries in our county. Now the county needs to step up.
Focus on fixing our roads - the top transportation priority that benefits us all.
