For many, many years I have been trying to persuade the town to find a way to eliminate the "dust bowl" conditions that people have had to live with for so long. Some of those roads are in the most attractive and desirable areas in town.
At long last, the town has taken a huge step in mitigating this problem.
The chip seal program carried out recently on most of the dirt roads should be applauded by all. I would certainly hope that all those living in those areas, and driving in them (including business people), will appreciate this action enough to drive in a considerate manner so as not to destroy what took so long to get.
Thanks to town government and especially town engineer LaRon Garrett, for a project so beneficial to rank-and-file citizens.
