Why is it that Hemet's city employees can openly violate the city's own code on asphalt repairs?

How do ya like that hose protector they put up on Cawston? Don't hit that piece of crap at anything over a crawl, unless you want your front end ripped out.

These goons have always been utterly incompetent, the idiots actually "misspelled" STOP at an intersection. Kid thee not.

Every city worker is an incompetent fool. The management is worse.

Got a pic of the mis-spelled "STOP"? Would make for a lively discussion on you-tube! Maybe the next "viral video"?

Last year I had my private parking lot resealed by the same contractor that had done it in past years.

As always, there were some severely cracked (alligatored) areas that needed to be repaired. The usual practice was to "overlay" those areas with a thin cover of asphalt and feather them out before seal coating.

But this time the city inspector disallowed any overlays. He said it was a violation of the city code. The required procedure is to grind or remove the existing asphalt to a depth of at least one inch and then fill the area to the same grade as the existing. That was a very costly procedure that I couldn't afford so we just applied the seal coat and are left with the unsightly cracks.

This week the City Street crews are "overlaying" significant portions of the street fronting my property. They have not ground out or removed any damaged portions of the street; they are simply laying a thin veneer of asphalt over the cracked up street.

I have seen them do that same process many times in various places throughout the city. Apparently their codes do not apply to their own property or practices.

Thank your "city leaders" for that. Code enforcement up, city services down. Go to a City Council meeting, and ask where the money is going. Bear in mind that you will be seeing "where it goes" when you look at the City Mangler, and the City Attorney. Those leeches you will not see present are Andrew Hall, Joseph Brann, and any other "consultants" that "City Council" has found a need to hire, so that Council and Mangler can sit back and do nothing more than line their pockets with kickbacks.

Petty? Minor? Stone? Chaudhri? Take your pick.

Besides the kickbacks, there are always the overpaid City Hall employees, as well as way overpaid "managers", "coordinators", "supervisors", "directors", and deputy this, assistant that.

Can anyone do their job anymore without help? I know that I can. I do it every day.

Sorry for the rant.........

I don't see where the schools are doing without. HUSD is well compensated. The problem with "a bunch of uneducated people" lies with the students themselves and the stupid parents raising them. Quit looking to the schools to raise your unruly kids.
