DES Staff: County Manager Is 'Repurposing' CIP Paving Funds for Aquatic Center, Pike Streetcar, Artisphere
I contacted Department of Environmental Services Staff last week to ask when my crumbling street (photo enclosed) is going to be repaved. After all, we voted about $72 million for street paving the last capital improvement bond issue. So we'll have plenty of money to repave Arlington's crumbling residential streets. Right? Wrong! According to DES Staff, bond funds that would have been used for street repaving are being 'repurposed' by County Manager Donnellan for the County Board's pet vanity projects. And BTW, according DES Staff, my residential street is going to have to become a total mess before its repaved in 2016 or 2017. Thanks for this blog.
