Talkin' 'Bout Potholes

New, 7 comments

From the devil's advocate files, the LA Times has an editorial defending the city of Los Angeles for the state of its pothole repair, saying more is being done to repair the city's streets than it appears, and, you know, running the city of LA is hard. LA's budget this year allotted "$91 million...to street resurfacing and reconstruction and $21.5 million to maintenance and repair, including potholes." Those numbers, while big, are well short of the estimated $263 million each year for the next ten years required to fix all of the city's streets. The editorial responds to recent moves by Holmby Hills residents desperately seeking annexation to Beverly Hills over the potholes in their posh neighborhood. [LAT]
