Donnellan Playing 3-Card Monte With Street Paving Funds

Hey Yupette,

My neighbors and I were promised by DES that our crumbling residential street would be repaved this Spring. Called DES to find out when this Spring. Turns out, after calling around DES, that our street won't be repaved until "sometime after June 30th". Why? The County Board's pressing wants are forcing the County Manager to shift funds from infrastructure needs to the County Board's pet projects (Artisphere, Arlington Mill, synthetic field replacement, etc.) until at least the end of FY 13 and possibly longer. I thought we approved bond funds for street repaving last year. Where are the street repaving funds going?

Thanks for your blog.
