I see all the low income areas of town, where they keep their studs on year round, are a priority again…

Pg101, so what your saying is that the city should not invest money into the hoods, so the rundown places can be further run down?

@ He Spoke – exactly. They aren’t allowed to have nice things

I’d rather people keep their studs on year round than not have them in the winter.

The ultimate troll!

IMO the city needs to get some line painting done on the road to the airport from Highway 97 south. When you are driving at night to the airport it is like a wagon trail with no markings. You would think if you want to attract tourists you could at least make the road from the airport safer and attractive.

Why would the city paint lines from the 97 south to the airport. That’s not even in city limits? Have to get on the provincial government for that one I think.

Well if it’s not City property then whoever is responsible for that section of road our MLA should see that it is maintained properly.

In regards to the repaving is there a special skill set that is missing? How hard can it be to have man hole covers level with the pavement. Seems to just be trading one set of pot holes for another.

The paving has to be done first, then the manhole frame and cover are raised to the new pavement height. Sometimes the two do not happen at the same time, which means one has to drive carefully to avoid the drop.

There are adjustable manhole risers these days which saves time and long lane closures. It is not difficult, but the two cannot be done simultaneously. The raising of the cover/frame has to happen after the paving.

Here are some choices:

Pave over and ignore
Pave over and dig up later
Raise manholes with precast grade rings or brisk
Raise manholes with rubber or plastic rings
Raise manholes with rigid steel or cast iron risers
Raise manholes with adjustable manhole risers
