No one can argue that our roads in New Canaan are in horrendous condition. It seems like every road in New Canaan has pot holes, cracks, and is in desperate need of repair or repaving.
As Tiger Mann has documented in the Town of New Canaan Pavement and Improvement Program and has stated publicly, the plan for 2011 will cost $2,030,000, the plan for 2012 will cost $2,000,000 and the backlog list will cost $993,000. It is a total cost of $5,023,000 needed for 2011-2012 and we are only issuing a bond for $4,000,000.
Tiger Mann also documented on this program and at the Town Council meeting that the cost of the sidewalks on Old Norwalk Road and Main Street are NOT INCLUDED in the $5,023,000 needed for road repair, road repaving and repair of existing sidewalks. Please review all the facts and VOTE YES at the referendum on Wednesday, April 27 at New Canaan High School from 6 a.m. – 8 p.m. Absentee ballots are available on the town website and contact the Town Clerk with any questions as soon as possible. Check out our website here or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Vote yes for the $4 million dollars to be spent exclusively on road repair, repaving and repairing our existing sidewalks. Fix our roads first! Vote yes!
