RAIN THE FERTILIZER OF POTHOLES- AND THE CON WHICH IS IMAGINE BROWNSVILLE

CITY COMMISSION TO PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS ON THE LACK OF SIDEWALKS:

City Commissioners say - "hey what is so wrong with people rolling their wheelchairs in the street? We have political cronies willing and ready to create wheelchair towing services when they get stuck in the potholes."

$900.00 is being paid to Imagine Brownsville to tell the City Commissioners the people want their potholes fixed. Nearly a mile of roads could have been fixed for that $900.00. Why is it that politicos need a private organization to bill the City of Brownsville to tell the City Commissions the wishes of the people? Could it be the City Commissioners are out of tune with the people? Nah.

With every day the potholes are getting bigger. If potholes have fertilizer it is all forms of increment weather which includes rain. Our city commission has no game plan to address the rapidly deteriorating infrastructure of Brownsville. To compound this is the moronic state officials who are overseeing 802. Has anyone else noticed that the State of Texas chose to put speed bumps around the drainage entries on 802. When you hit them while driving everyone and everything in the car goes flying. Does anyone know if this is permanent or just a temporary measure?

Our city commission has declared it will never admit to the mistake of hiring of Santana Torres as the Director of Public Works, a high school graduate, while turning away engineers as unqualified. The potholes will continue to grow because Brownsville has no one on staff who understands the repair of potholes. They have no one on staff who understands you do not dig up Morningside and leave dirt in place of a road for a month at a time. This happens over and over again. Morningside sooner than later is going to become the one extended pothole Iowa has become.

If Brownsville cannot afford to address the increasing demands for law enforcement, emergency services, and infrastructure repair, how in hell is it going to afford to address any of the recommendations of Imagine Brownsville? On simple things like mandating sidewalks, which adults and children alike demanded at the Imagine Brownsville public forums, our esteemed City Commissioners say - "hey what is so wrong with people rolling their wheelchairs in the street? We have political cronies willing and ready to create wheelchair towing services when they get stuck in the potholes."
