Many Town of Smithtown residents have come to Patch, complaining about the horrible shape the roadways are in. They are divided over who to point the finger at, and what to do about it.
Patch reported Wednesday that , executive director of the Association for a Better Long Island, for his failure to maintain the town's roadways. Desmond went as far as to say Vecchio would be dead before residents would see any improvement in the roadway, and only then recognize how bad off the town's roads truly area.
His remarked were based on Vecchio's public statement he will not approve of borrowing $10 million over the next two years to help repave more than 120 miles of road and fix 6,000 outstanding sidewalk complaints, . Vecchio believes borrowing the money would put too much of a burden on taxpayers.
However, Jorgenson claims the $10 million bond would go a long way towards fixing Smithtown's roads, and only cost the average homeowner $1 a month, or $12 per year.
At that cost, we'd like to ask you: Would you be willing to pay $12 more in taxes a year to see more of Smithtown's roads repaved?
