Is it just me or is our DOH a HUGE wast of taxpayers dollars? Have you seen some of the paving "work" that they have been doing? grassy creek towards diana - looks like some 5yr old kids smeared blacktop all over the road, and above parcoal road - better keep both hands on the wheel or you will crash! We should be contracting out all of this work from paving to snow removal. We dont need all of those overpaid DOH employees and their pensions, health care coverage etc. Not to mention all of the vehicles, insurance, fuel and on and on. I know all of these state workers wont like this idea but it would save our state a TON of money as well as give us taxpaying citizens road repair by qualified persons that is safe to drive on.

It's called a budget. They don't get millions of dollars to do whatever they want with, they have to make do with what money they get.

WOW says DOH doesn't pave roads--i traveled by grassy creek to diana this fall countless times and, yes, it was DOH doing a child-like half a$$ job paving--just slop it down and go. To show you the difference just drive down RT 15 in Braxton county and you will see where the DOH in Braxton cut up the bad parts and smoothly laid back the pavement. Webster DOH is a joke.

I bet people won't be complaining this winter when they want to get to Wal-Mart and spend their money or they have to get a loved one to the hospital when it is pooring down the snow and the roads are pretty clear. Yes they did do some spot paving, but that is what their Supervisor Vince Cogar told them to do. If you look all over the state it is done like that this time of year. If it wasn't done, you wouldn't believe the potholes that you would have next spring. The men cannot "pave" the road, our governor and other state employees in Charleston has that done by companies from Ohio and other areas. As for making a lot of money, yeah that is why just about all of the DOH guys wives work. They just make so much money!!! Maybe if you're an engineer for the State or work in Charleston, but not around here. As for the insurance, the premiums are high and the benefits suck. For those complaining, why don't you try working for the state road for 2 weeks in the winter and 2 weeks in the summer. Getting called out all hours of the night for trees down, or rock slides. Plowing the roads during the holidays and missing watching your children have Christmas, when you get to be with your children. Remember this when you have an emergency and have to get somewhere. What if they weren't there to get the roads plowed? What if your loved one was having a heart attack and the roads hadn't been plowed?
Work there in the summer in the hot weather and you have to get a dead deer off the road or from the ditchline, and it is swollen and basically explodes all over you when you go to move it.
GROW UP PEOPLE, A JOB IS A JOB! If they are doing the best they can with the equipment and staff that they have, SHUT UP and stop complaining. You could be the next one that needs to get to a hospital or a loved one, and the only reason you can is because the roads are clear.

Your right people should not complain about the roads. The men are only allowed to do what they are told. Believe me the men dont like doing half ass jobs either. They get there orders and they do as said.I do have one complaint.Mowing this time of year that seems just a bit crazy.I seen a man mowing in webster just about 3 weeks ago.But i guess they are just doing what they are told.

Then they need to lay a much of them off during the "good weather" months. The only time you usually see them work is in the winter.

How would you like to layed off from your job? Or do you even have a job. I think our state road guys are great workers. If they were to be layed off from there jobs in the summer then the roads would look like shit. But if you dont get out much who cares about your road. If i was the state road I would not plow your road in the winter since you say they dont do there jobs.I would like to thank our state road crew for a great job.
