I have never seen such crappy raods as here in Bend. The County inspectors are the crappiest in the state. They repave 'New Potholes" they never raise Sewer manhole covers or storm manhole covers to Proper finish grade!!! they just pave over them!!! so you can dodge a new hole!! Same thing with water valve castings, they lift them up when they pave, "Sometimes" but the dumb idiots know they will go right back down after traffic hits them for a few days!!! Because the sliding valve boxes DO NOT have a Bottom Flange!!!!!! But the county inspectors just let it keep going this way!!! for ten years I have seen this crap go on here!!! ALL the inspectors should be fired!! dont get me started on the waste of money we do not have on removing and replacing all these ADA ramps cause the in spectors did the "Good Ol Boy" inspections!!!!!!
