5/5/2017: Newton conducts assessment of every street, Randlett fails

The city recently conducted an assessment to determine the condition of each street. They used StreetScan, a ground penetrating radar. (Don’t even ask you guys.) Streets were ranked from 0-100, 0 being worst 100 the best.

Randlett scored a 37.

As the mayor of Randlett, you might think I’m upset. I’m not. So we failed this test. Who cares. I’ve bombed dozens of tests. Ask Management. Or my parents. Or anyone at Mclean High School. Or Northeastern University.

Everyone knows the street is in rough shape. Don’t need StreetScan or some radar to tell us that. It was last paved in 1978. We’re getting re-paved in 2019.

So 37? IDGAF about no 37. It’s like Algebra 2 all over again.


8/11/2015: Randlett road repairs

When Dale wants something done, it’s gonna get done. Like when 161 Randlett was for sale and the yard looked like crap. Dale walked by and told me to mow it. But I think I had like a groupon to Blue Ribbon that night and didn’t want it to expire. Next day she told me to mow it again and I was going to. Swear to god. Wasn’t fast enough for Dale though. So she called the realtor and told her it looked like crap. Next day it was mowed.

Dale’s new thing is fixing the road. You may or may not have noticed that it too looks like crap. Road was last paved in 1978 and is not scheduled to be repaved until 2019. Not gonna work for Dale. So she went out last week and documented & measured each hole in the road. Then sent the following letter to the city;

Honestly, within like 3 days all the holes on upper Randlett were filled. Lower Randlett should be repaired soon. So you guys have Dale to thank.
