Here we are, January 0f 2016 and City Council is upset that more hasn’t been completed.  According to the KFOX report, nearly 100 street projects have stalled, and nothing has been done on more than 70 projects approved four years ago.  Additionally, the plan called for 90 streets to be reconstructed and only ONE street can be considered complete.  Despite the poor management so far, “Council members asked for an additional $51 million in projects to be added to the list.”  It only makes sense, when someone has proven that they can’t get the job done, give them more money and more projects… that will fix the problem.
