Actually, it’s the Non-Readers we want to talk to, the people who FAILED to PAY ATTENTION to Gilbert!
It was, as the young folk say, an EPIC fail. If more people had been reading Granolapark, there wouldn’t have been this outbreak of hysteria over Route 410.
Non-Readers, don’t be such uninformed ninnies! Read Granolapark! Read every post! Repeatedly! Memorize every word!
If you HAD, you’d have known about this road transfer thing since LAST APRIL!
You’d also have known that last February the State Highway Administration (SHA) originally offered to hand ownership of Route 410 over to the city. The council said NO WAY! They knew that was a sneaky way to pass the maintenance on to the city – an expensive proposition for such a busy road, and one the city has no budget for.
So it was in April that the SHA came back with the next proposal – as reported in Granolapark. That proposal was also unacceptable, so the council negotiated with the aid of our state delegates to create the most recent draft – which is still being revised, and will likely be revised a good deal more once the pitchfork and torch-bearing townsfolk are finished venting at tonight’s city council meeting.
