What's the hold up on Street Repairs?

Original post made by What's the hold up on Street Repairs on Mar 26, 2010

Yet another Your Government at work?

There are several big signs all over that claim Pleasanton Streets are going to be resurfaced "in 2009" for example on Santa Rita, near Valley, but the Completion date has a board covering it. Yet nothing has even started. I was hoping this might be part of the TARP or Stimulus deals.
Reporters, can you find out and let us know?

You can thank Arnold for the delay. With the state budget woes it was our gas tax dollars being taken away that has delayed resurfacing projects. Once Pleasanton gets the money (or at least official word the money is coming) resurfacing projects can be started.

Maybe they spent all their money on the big signs and had no money left to actually do the work.

Read the signs closer...they're about federal dollars. I read that one some time ago and commented, I wish those federal dollars had been spent on something OTHER than signs !! With some petty people, Arnold loses either way , alto it's the lousy legis that has over promised goodies to be funded from our taxes (since before Arnold) !

Jeez... by and large, Pleasanton streets are in outstanding condition (with a few notable exceptions, most easily observed if you're riding a bike). Stimulus money would be better spent repaving stretches of 680

Thank you for making me laugh out loud about maybe they spent all the money on the signs. Priceless
