Sara Rd. North of 178th has to be the worst "city rd." in Oklahoma!! I dare somebody to go and count the pot holes that have been patched. It would literally take years. And why hasn't the dirt portion been paved?? New houses and tax paying citizens but same old country red dirt road.

It's because the city council here focuses on the wrong issues. Look at city hall. Go in there any day of the week and look at the number of employees they have there! You will almost always catch one or two of them sitting up front gossiping. I guarantee that they are employing 2 pointless positions. I have heard of one councilman making a comment about this as well. I hope he truly brings this up with the rest of the council soon.

They really need to address this issue. It seems to be a very busy road. They are lucky that nobody has sued them for damage to their vehicles. Lol!! There are many empty lots up and down that road that I'm sure would have houses on them if it weren't for the deplorable road conditions. I for one love Piedmont and wouldn't dream of living anywhere else. But the city limits stretch so far out from the actual town that it seems like they forget about how rapidly the population is growing in these outlying areas.

There are other ways to get these roads built without a bond being passed. If the city council would get off their butts and try to annex land south of the city to get some of the commercial revenue then they could built roads with the tax money. Or they could go to the okc council and show them why we need the intersection of highway 3 & 4. Put together a presentation showing how this would allow our city to grow and be more beneficial to us than it is for okc! I think our council is just too lazy to do it! People say okc won't give up that "cash cow", but it's not a cash cow to okc! Okc has much higher revenue areas of the city. Surrey hills at highway 3 and mustang is a perfect example! Vote these lazy asses out and let's get someone in who really wants to make a difference.

BB2 - That road is scheduled to be reconstructed if the bond passes - if you vote no on the bond, you get to live with your roads.
Wilson - you are a completely ignorant idiot.

With the amount of area Piedmont has annexed, coupled with their endless speed traps, one would think there would be enough money to fix the roads. And when they do finally send someone out to fill a pothole, they only make it worse. They create mountains where there was a crater. Just another waste of tax payers money. If they used their money wisely they wouldn't need to introduce a bond issue. If you're going to be greedy enough to annex such a huge area at least take on the responsibility to maintain the roads.

Every city in Oklahoma is a speed trap rural. Nothing new. Just do the speed limit everywhere you are at and you'll be fine. Cracks me up when I see people bitch and speed limits but I never get stopped because I obey the signs! As far as annexation... They annexed the wrong direction! Look at what they could have had of they had taken land south instead of north! Our city council both past and present are idiots! They could get the area south with a ton of hard work. No one wants to put in the effort to even try. Give up the north and annex south!

I've never been stopped for speeding and wasn't saying I have. No tickets or warnings for me! I obey the speed limits and have no problem doing so. What I'm bitching about is that they send their police out in full force to hide and wait for people and rake in the dough but do nothing to maintain the roads. I don't know if OKC would give up South. If they're smart they wouldn't but maybe you're in the know about it.

Apparently that is all that is elected to this city council. You defined yourself perfectly. It's obvious who who are! Mr. Recall
