    What else can be done? I can’t find anything that could be cut significantly enough to fix a single road.

    Just returned from the meeting. The town had proposed a 5 year road plan. Ours was not on it. We pled our case. We might get taken care of but I might take up launching an override campaign.

    I was wrong about how many miles of roads in my town. There are actually 88 miles, so more than double those dollars I would still pay to have them in good shape, but I doubt others would

    Similar here. $4500 per year in property taxes but no garbage pickup. No water or sewer. We paid for plowing for a few years

    Even if it is all/mostly rain, I would like that depiction on the Euro. At least it is interesting.

    Yeah...it becomes much harder when you have that many miles and a smaller population. I just get so angry at the condition of the roads. This didn't happen when I was growing up, not in other parts of the state that I lived in. Part of the issue I think is lack of commercial development/industry. Pretty much all of the tax base is from property taxes by homeowners. Mass limits tax increases to 2.5% per year max. Costs are going up more than that and everything is being squeezed. I know a realtor who just started showing a property on my street that is the last house before the road turns to shit. She told me she was so thankful that the house was where it was or she figured it would be a 5-10% hit if it was on the bad part (which is basically the rest of our road) That's nuts

    We also have 40ish miles of town owned roads... so, $120,000 per mile = $4.8 million. I estimate 2000 taxpaying households... so $2400 per household. Divided over 10 years = $240 per household to have well maintained, resurfaced roads every 10 years. My road is over 20 years old and has never been properly maintained. Just potholes filled with cold patch I also just paid out over $500 in excise taxes, this year, which are supposed to be for road maintainance and repair (plowing is separate I think) I would buy that in a heartbeat. I have already spent $1200 in the last year on suspension work on our cars
