Vail Daily letter: Wasteful spending
I imagine I must be fortunate to live in here in Eagle County where we have so much tax money to burn. I live in Homestead in Edwards where this week our perfectly smooth and pothole-free streets are being torn up and re-paved. While I love a fresh smooth road as much as the next person, I am at a total loss to see the reason, nor have I been able to find an answer to why this needed to be done. I would think the cost of fixing what is not broken could have been better spent on developing local parks, schools or some other more worthwhile social or infrastructure program.
I would be curious to know what was so wrong with our streets and that they needed to be repaved.
