My comments are related to the recent letter by Hans Pietsch (Fix pot holes properly, March 20). We should listen to Hans. He has been around and around for a long time. Hans was a stock car racer. This is what I mean when I say he has been around and around.
1) Pot Holes – Why did we pave Coquihalla picnic site? There is enough pavement there to fill all the pot holes in Hope and Silver Creek.
2) Fire chief – Hope needs a fire chief to do the paper work for the insurance companies – this is a must. Do we need a full-time position for the fire chief? We could find other jobs for him to do in the community. The streets haven’t been as clean since Louis Guitterez retired. He was a street cleaner for years in Hope and wore short sleeves in the summer and winter. He cleaned the streets with nothing but a broom and shovel.
3) Sucker’s Creek Bridge – Why did we spend $1.4 million on the bridge and still make it a one-way lane? I realize it only cost Hope about $500,000 to build.
