The obvious solution for better quality roads is more bike lanes.

Rome wasn’t built in a day!

No but it fell very quickly.

In the beginning the Board of Supervisors were paid a stipend to perform their duties, which was to equitably provide the benefit of the State of California, Incorporated County of San Luis Obispo. Their major charge was the Engineering Department which constructed and maintained public roads. Today, with the onset of much greater tax dollars provided by the, 10 fold in population for the same area, there is not enough money to maintain the existing public safety partially because of need for funding Social Engineering “Fund Me Exploitations” as in the hobo camps, waterways pollution, trespass and trash management. This funding is tolerated because of taxpayer apathy and it is very likely that new tax assessments will be “mandated” to fund the differed road maintenance. Again this will be a “Mandate”, not a vote for choice because there is no FREEMA Money.

And yet the roads have been left of the SLO board of supervisors agenda…. Good luck I guess?

PERS pensions with gold plated lifetime healthcare is much more important, and of course, a much higher priority than road maintenance.

Only PERS members to get lifetime healthcare is safety. The fearless fire and law enforcement. Read next article.
