Public Comments:

Ken Sokol:

The N 19th Road TEA project is an unnecessary project. It will add little value to affected property and consume a significant amount of land. The road will add additional maintenance expenses for the Town and be of very little benefit.

Patricia (Sokol) Lewis:

Our family is opposed to building of the N 19th Road on the west of my fathers property. It would take more property away from our farm.
I don’t believe this construction would be beneficial compared to the cost. The Town would be better to build an overpass on W 16th Road. I don’t believe that in a real emergency the fire or ambulance would use this route. They would use the shortest route possible and that would be the Rosner previous driveway crossing the freeway and then using Augie Rosner’s new driveway.
I think this money could be better used on other projects that would benefit more people or build an overpass (which should have been done when the freeway was built).

Chairman Heroux open the sealed bids received on 2009 Highway Construction projects:
