Out for a drive just after lunch today and happened upon a wonderful sight.
Workmen preparing for paving! Yes! It’s Summer!, And where are they preparing to pave you ask?
It’s not 3rd and McBride, nor is it 11th Ave, or anywhere in the East End!
Its Barrow Place! ( a culdisac off of Sloan Ave ) Totally stripped of pavement,
and ready for a new coat.
Anytime I have driven through there I thought the road surface was pretty sound.
Is this just a practice for Adventure Paving?
With City Hall crying poverty, wouldn’t it be more cost effective to practice where its better needed.
The other City Amusement that I happened upon was the city worker diligently weed eating on 11th Ave.
while he was making fairly good progress with his task, the worker behind him with the gas powered
leaf blower seemed quite bored. Is the blower needed? Nice job for about $20 bucks an hour!
Whats wrong with a push broom? Or 1 man doing the job.
The city seems to be spending money like they have it.
