Tom, State highways and Main streets don't apply on property owners paying for the road in front of their property. It is in subdivisions where dirt roads were approved and then the property owners want it paved. They want it they pay for it. It was dirt when they moved there. . We were in the county but had a Gilbert address. The street that was paved had to be voted on by the people on the street and I think 100% had to agree. That was way back in 1992 or so and I can't remember what I had for breakfast. But I do remember passing petitions to keep our two streets we had houses on not to pave them. How to make friends. (:

Have you noticed most of them up here drive new cars and pickups? We visited my brother in-law in San Carlos about 10 yrs. ago and the people there seemed to be living quite well. Mexico is just like here. The ones that really want to work do.

I put a smiley face behind Mr. Naughton's name. He has been very fair to me.

What kind of living conditions do all these homeless kids have that we keep hearing about ? Are they living in the forest or where?

How about enforcing the sign ordinance that was put into effect a few years ago? Or was it thrown out like the one on cargo bins as storage rooms on residential property?

We don't have any more water now than we had when we were told we couldn't plant grass. The college isn't any closer than a year ago. Wasn't it told to begin with classes would start in 2012? So much crap to read and next week it all changes or complete silence for weeks.

If "We the People" like landscapers, restaurants, fast foods, and the town would stop hiring them that would help. Several yrs. ago I fired my landscaper when he showed up with his crew that couldn't speak English. The next time I saw him his crew was doing work around town hall.

Ronald, I can still rant and rave, they haven't taken that away from me yet.
Only John Naughton stops me at times. (:

When a road is built or improved by paving it raises the valuation of your property. I don't see anything wrong with that.
I know I posted on here about not paving the roads where I lived outside of Gilbert. Whole different thing. It was a subdivision of 1 and 2 acre lots and built for people that wanted horses, calves and other animals. No pigs. We wanted the roads left dirt so horses wouldn't slip and fall while having someone riding. And again it slowed traffic down. It was a family and animal subdivision. Every one that lived there while I was there over 15 yrs all felt safe from traffic racing thru the subdivision and running over someone.

Why are the illegals not being sent back where they came from? If they are illegal they shouldn't be here going to school or anything else. They are taking jobs, medical and education from citizens. Get rid of them.

Usually when a road is built or improved all property owners adjoining it will be assessed by the footage of road that goes by their property. When we lived in a subdivision near Gilbert with dirt roads there was always someone wanting to pave them.. Most of the people already there rode their horses on the dirt roads so we fought against it. The dirt also kept the traffic slower. Out of 5 streets and two cross streets they finally got one paved. I used it because it was next to one of our houses. but I didn't have to pay for it because it didn't go in front of our property. One of our houses was on a corner and it would have cost us almost $18,000 for the two houses we owned. A little dust never hurt anyone. They all knew the roads were dirt before they moved there.
