Why? Why? Why?

Please stop cutting the old electric poles in half and putting up new more expensive ones. It is dangerous for the workers and the public. Put the lines underground now when it is easy to do during construction. This will be vital when the next hurricane hits. Remember Charley when there was no electricity and water for two weeks and nobody could get back to save their belongings. Transformers will be safe from lighting.

Precious space will be more available for transportation. Traffic visibility will increase, think about  the views of our precious island and gulf without them.

Please use pervious pavers on our sidewalks and boulevard and side streets (or just turn it back to hard packed sand) to solve our stormwater issues and thus prevent discharges into our estuary as well as save on our water bills and the need to spend 60 mil more on stormwater treatment loans. The value and ascetics to our island will increase greatly.

Please explain why we are not using alternative methods of construction such as trenchless and directional technology as outlined on page 14 of Tetra Tech’s water facilties report resulting in minimal disruption and further damage to our economy.

Why can’t construction go full force 24/7 especially during off season?

Why are we not asking for Emanate Domain on the sugar land instead of a water treatment component for C-43 in order to prevent a disaster such as the 1928 hurricane event?

Why did weekly town manager reports stop being published in the town hall’s archives in 2015?

What happened to the letter from Tetra Tech to the town and their reference to not being paid?

The time is now, it is not too late. We have the opportunity to be one of the greatest places on earth.

Choose Utopia not Myopia
