Does anyone else think that the new road resurfacing is a slap in the face to taxpayers? I know since it's started, I've ended up with rock chips in my windshield and chips in my paint on my car. I don't drive fast on it, but you cannot avoid being sprayed with rocks when someone in a car they don't care about drives by at normal speed. I just listen to the rocks blasting my car that I try and keep pristine. I never thought that road resurfacing was going to lower the value of my vehicles. They really should have been more diligent about sweeping up the rock quarry that was once our neighborhood. This type of resurfacing seems more suited to an industrial park, not a neighborhood where kids actually want to ride bicycles and skateboards. Even the areas that were nicely paved near Great Oaks Elementary several months ago are littered with rocks. There's no escaping it and I feel like WilCo just doesn't really care about it's taxpayers with this type of inconsideration of people's personal property. I pay a lot of taxes and now have to pay even more to have my car, my husband's truck, and my daughter's car all repaired in some way due to the missiles being launched everytime I leave my house. Does WilCo have an insurance policy to address any of these issues? I can't even get a return phone call. Thanks to Lisa Birkman for thinking these rocks were a great idea. I would much rather have my old roads back!

I live in the Woods of Brushy Creek and can't agree more. We have large mounds of rocks on our street, which go downhill to a cove. The amount of rocks at the bottom have to be almost ankle high. I know my kids have not been able to ride their bikes in weeks. School starts soon and that will be a nightmare.
I have also been wondering if it's going to affect the sewer drains. That's where alot of it is ending up. Will we then have to pay higher taxes when that all backs up? That is, if it ever rains again :)
