Don’t forget South Elm Street

I have read the responses that others have said about the condition of their streets, especially Ward Four.

I live in Ward One, and I also would suggest that those responsible for making decisions about the repair should drive down South Elm Street.

Ever since I’ve lived there, I’ve had to pull over to let oncoming cars pass.

Otherwise I run the risk of running into someone’s mailbox.

I am sure our street does not meet city specifications for the proper width.

I am most concerned about the possibility of an emergency vehicle such as a fire truck or ambulance getting through if there happened to be a car parked on the street.

In addition, the street has been patched so many times you can hardly tell what the original street looked like.

If the commissioners and City Manager Steve Howerton are reading this, I encourage them to designate for replacement the streets that are in the greatest need of replacement or repair.
