Re: Letter, “Manmade potholes,” Aug. 15.
How can I take Fred Ulmer’s complaint seriously when he fails to understand that we are just lucky to have these nice, wide streets.
Our manholes and access ports for turning on and off water to different homes all used to be between the sidewalk and the curb. Then when people wanted on-street parking the city obliged them.
Eventually, as traffic counts mounted; on-street parking was eliminated so we could have four or five lanes of traffic.
Mr. Ulmer should be grateful for the nice wide streets, manmade potholes, and all that the beloved tax payers have spent hard-earned money just to have a street to drive on. Now if he insists that these be rectified, why not send him the bill.
