I saw several County workers congregated down in Belfast. I recon they are fixing to rip out all that concrete they pour in the spring. Rumor mill says it is property owned by a private citizen and the County/State(?) did not seek permission to do it.

So... who is paying for the lost material and cost to plan, excavate and pour it and now to have it all removed???? Us. The tax payer. Unless the state paid for it with a grand (State or Federal).

Private citizen. Was it a driveway or section near the road? Who called and asked for concrete work? That person needs to pay from start to end in my opinion. That person can't pay for what he wanted. Is this a slap on the risk or make it right and forget it ever took place type of politics. Don't you reckon that citizen can sue for damaging his property. Why isn't this reported in the paper?

Relax, you obviously don't know the details. It was an area between the bank and the old post office. It had been paved over from years ago and many used it like an extension to Old Belfast road. It is at the corner of Old Belfast Rd and Fishing Ford. Check it out on Google maps. That is the way it looked BEFORE it was concreted with curbs and such. I believe it was on a list of accident prone intersections. No citizen asked for it to be curbed as far as I know. Either the State or the County took it upon themselves to have the work done, so they are also the ones responsible for removing it. If anything, the approvers need to be called out in reckoned with. Maybe their pay needs to be garnished to pay for it. Not the tax payer!

On Google maps, if you use the street scene option, you will see a recent shot of the area, curbs and all.

There hasn't been a wreck there in years. Just another way to spend money like the Mooresville Hwy deal.

It is better to keep your fingers off the keyboard and appear to be an idiot than to type and remove all doubt.

All the poster did was misspell a word. That is not illiterate you dumb donkey.

Illiterate: Unable to read or write.

If you are going to slam posters, at least know what the f you are doing.

The old Post Office looks like a tiny piece of real estate. Is it is in an Historical area with strict codes?
