Folks:
This is but the first of all county owned roads in subdivisions in our county.
Note the cost for the road,curbs, sidewalks is just $5 Million dollars. A million dollars a mile [5280 feet] if there are all of 5 miles. Even greater if only 3.5 miles. And up for shorter distances.
What a grant to those 500 homesites! Can they ever pay enough property tax to repay the rest of our tax payers for their good fortune?
Remember this the next time our county accepts yet another sub divisions roads. Just how far does the maintain concept get extended?
With a liability like that our county's dossier next time we go to get bonds sold, just what interest rate to you think we'll get?
How many miles of sub division roads are we deemed to repair in the future?
Who were those commissioners who passed that ordinance? Were they short sighted?
Weren't some the owners of the sub division?
Or just good old buddies of the developers?
The archives should reveal these historical facts.
This revelation should warrant a revisit to the ordinance now. Especially if we are planning to go to the Bond Market soon.
