Pleasant Grove Roads

The one hundred and sixteen miles of roads are an easy target, as they are the icing on the cake. However, under that icing , is aging infrastructure that needs to be inspected and improved. Sidewalks, water and sewer lines are being updated according to the three year plan. I will continue to lobby the state legislature for increased funds for our roads. I have looked at the idea of a road fee and believe that it would be a needed sacrifice to catch up on years of neglect.

 

Decisions were made over four decades ago that Pleasant Grove choose not to have an off-ramp from I-15, but desired to be a “bedroom community”, which decision has resulted in the city attempting to pay catch-up for commercial development.
Also, the city wisely decided to install a secondary water system and in so doing the streets, which because of lack of funding were not in the best of condition. were torn up.  All of us drive the roads, which are in dire condition. And the roads become an easy target to express our frustrations with the city officials.

I am asking for your support to elect me to assist in the task ahead.  If elected I would ask for your patience, understanding and positive comments to assist us to work through these problems.  There is one hundred and sixteen miles of roads in the city with aging asphalt and infrastructure that needs to be replaced. Sidewalks, water. sewer and roads are being updated according to the three year plan. This is a monumental task that will not be solved by pointing fingers.  We need our local state legislator to push for increased funds for our roads.
