Is the street even economically viable? I would suggest renaming the street to Unpleasant Street and let the rest of it fall into the river.

Because the one house that is beyond that point doesn't want a temporary fix. Also, if the road is deemed private property because there are no city utilities ran past the bad spot, the property owner could not allow trucks on property.

There is a family living at the end of this road, what if they need emergency help?? I see a lawsuit if something happens to this family and they are unable to get help in time or is they get injured just crossing the road to get to the grocery store, bank etc... What inthe dickens is the city waiting for - FIX THE ROAD!

Because if the road isn't a city road then why would they pump $300k+ into a private drive?

Its just another stall tacked on the citys part. I have family who are dealing with issues from the city they live in beause they are the last house in the city limits. You are only important to the city or town you live in when it benefits them but when you need something done they slap you in the face.

You're wrong on this case, it's a legal issue as well. The council has been working on a solution, engineers, lawyers, all that. This property past the road is not within city limits. Their house taxes go to the county, no city utilities either.

From the picture, it doesn't look any worse than some of the potholes in F.D.!
