Road repairs impact businesses

The paving in downtown Hope should have been done after the summer rush

I appreciate that the town of Hope has taken on the needed repairs to our streets.

But I would like to know why it was decided that the best time to do it would be the busiest time of the summer. This time is when our merchants make their income to cover them for the rest of the year. Common sense would dictate this be done after the summer rush.

I hope that this town got a major reduction in the cost for allowing the contractor to do this work now rather than in the middle of September.
