Council members had been in agreement to use general fund money to fix city's deteriorating streets.

City council appeared to agree Monday to use a $100,000 carry over in the general fund to fix the city's deteriorating streets.

The point of contention was which street. A story about this subject was published in Wednesday's Reflector. To read the story, pick up a copy of that issue or subscribe to the e-paper (a complete digital replica of the entire issue) for less than $1 per week and read it now.



Naw, potholes work better than spike strips . . . and they're more cost effective, too. LOL


How did this fail?


I think the main issue of contention is that Kennedy is one of the more affluent neighborhoods in Willard and it happens to get rated the worst street in town.


No doubt that street is the worst, or one of them. My parents ally is better to drive down...not kidding. Still, if they have the money, whats the hold up? Is it really because they don't know what horrible street to repair. If so, put pictures of them all (and there are many) on a dart board and start throwing darts at it.

Kennedy sucks but I don't consider that a public street.That's more of a housing development.They need to use the $ to fix the road in front of the park on Laurel for sure.Wasted plenty of money on Myrtle with all the curbs & medians.


I think they have already prioritized the severity of streets in Willard. Whats the hold up council? Is it the city manager or inter council differences. Work to get our roads fixed. Its not that hard.
