What they have done in the past is "borrow" workers from other Departments to help with the labor for street repair. For instance, they've assigned sewer workers to street repair in the past.

This is, of course, illegal, as the sewer maintenance is fee based and many of us who pay our 89.00 a month for sewer hook ups live outside Ukiah's city limits, so basically they are illegally diverting funds from sewer maintenance to street repair.

And yes, I can absolutely prove this has happened in the past, on several occasions.

I wonder where all the road taxes went? The fuel taxes have gone up every year, even during the recession. Those taxes were supposed to go for transportation infrastructure, not police, fire and what have you.

And now there’s this little problem that isn’t advertised: On average if a road problem like cracking that originally would have cost say $10,000.00 to fix here in Nor -Cal and is deferred for a year it’ll cost $100,000.00 to fix now.

The cracking allows water to penetrate the base which causes saturation and leads to “pumping” that destroys the surrounding roadway.

Butt the people you elected to office all knew this when the took the money for other purposes and deferred road maintenance.

There are some file clerks in the court & workers' office that I think should be on road gangs. They are fat, mean, smelly and have the social skills of luggish molluscs. That means they shopuld be promoted to road surfacing oilers. More taxes, more b s more nonsense from the Morons from Outer Space.

Those clerks don't spend the road taxes, it's the politicians who direct where the money goes and what it's spent on.

Those “clerks” are at the bottom of the pay scale. It’s the engineers who make top dollar and don’t do anything that are the problem. And I find it pathetic that during the recession loads of people who actually “work” for their wages lost their jobs or at a minimum had their wages and benefits cut while the bosses all kept their jobs even though many of them no longer had viable staff working for them.
