How are the streets in front of your house? Now that the snow has melted and the ground is thawing, do you have potholes on your street, or on your commute? Do you have any snowplow damage to your curb, mailbox, etc., from the winter?

If there are any problem spots, where are they?

    I drive thru Brandon daily on my treck to work, i have to say the Asphalt the city of brandon has used to fill in “potholes” on the east side of brandon is not working. its either that, or they did an awful job. they would be better off putting a layer of the Asphalt over the whole road. what a disgrace! i would of thought the city would be more aware of thier roads.

    If you are talking about aspen from valley to brandon that is not the city that patched that it was the county

    Redwood East from Splitrock to the gravel is all broke up.

    Redwood Blvd is awful especially near from about Pace to Splitrock, but if there was any drainage there instead of Redwood river it would not be so bad. Wonder why the city did not put any gutters there to avoid the road washing away.

    Is the gravel portion of Redwood city or county responsibility?

    It’s not the gravel I was speaking of. It’s the city limits street UP TO the gravel that is all broke up.

    To #6 and #5: Actually, it is a township road.

    I’m hoping Aspen by McHardy Park will be getting some lines painted this summer. Too many people think it’s one big lane, 2 lanes, passing lane or turning lane. Very dangerous for people out riding bikes or walking.

    The City Council meeting is broadcast on the local cable TV channel every Wednesday at 8 p.m. You can always record it and watch it at your leisure. Most meetings are less than an hour long.

    Also, someone from the Brandon Valley Challenger (usually editor Jill Meier) attends every council meeting and writes a story about it. The cost of the local weekly newspaper is minimal and could be very informative. You also can read the Challenger free at the Brandon or Valley Springs libraries.

    I realize these things won’t answer every question you have, but they might help.

    Alica - Have you ever tried to listen to the Council meeting on the local channel? It doesn’t really answer questions because you can’t hear everything. You can only hear the Council members or sometimes someone at the podium (if the microphone is working). You cannot hear people off to the side. Pretty much a waste of time.

    I used to get the paper but I don’t really think they covered topics in a timely manner. By the time it was printed and distributed (and minutes published) most items the Council discussed were over and done-no time for any public input.

    Finally, despite the TV broadcast and the newspaper articles, the council minutes should be more informative. It is nonsense for them to be so void of information.
