Reader shares thoughts on city's road repair list

To the editor:

Today, I read with interest (and disbelief) the article regarding upcoming city road repairs. Again, it seems that drivers will have to endure the conditions on Kemp from Oneida to Wabash and Lincoln from Oneida to Evergreen. Of course this is just a small example of road repairs needed in the city. You can easily add the entire length of Stevens (some of which is on the list), Courtney, S. Pelham and the entire length of Coon, to name just a few. As I see it, the streets have been left in disrepair for so long that the city will never be able to catch up. The whopping $80+K brought in from the "resort tax" isn't enough to pay the curb and gutter repairs that are scheduled. So drivers, you better keep putting those dollars in the piggy bank for your next front end alignment and dental work. On the bright side, soon those cracks and potholes will be filled with snow and ice and the tooth-jarring bumps will not be as bad
