I would like your help.
Earlier this year, a crew came to our neighborhood and conducted the most frivolous undertaking imaginable. It was so odd, it was almost humorous - or at least it would have been, had it not been for the waste of tax dollars the exercise in roadedge esthetics represented.
The crew went about removing the curbs near the driveways of every other home in our neighborhood and then replacing with identical structures. This enterprise took place whether or not the homeowner had asked, and whether or nor the curb needed replacing. Some weren't even worn or damaged.
What possible rationale is there for this kind of expense given our taxation rate and the need to address other budget priorities?
Recently, an even more ambitious enterprise has begun on Dollarton Highway, where a surface in almost pristine condition leading from Cates Park and down to Deep Cove has been completely torn up. Presumably, this is to make way for another length of identical tarmac.
Given this age of supposed austerity, why oh why are my (our!) scarce tax dollars being spent this way?
