Holding a petition with more than 80 signatures, Jack Hilton says he’s had enough with the poor condition of the road near his home at the Green Acres Trailer Park on Frizzi Road.
“I called the city the other day and was told they’d already received three calls from other people,” he says.
A few months ago his car incurred $1,200 in damage from asphalt hitting the front of it.
“The city won’t fix the road properly. They keep coming and patching it up, but it doesn’t last. There are a lot of low cars and if they sit low to the ground, and the asphalt pops up, there’s going to be damage,” he explains.
Hilton says when the highway nearby was widened, the problems started.
Add in the fact that large trucks are using Frizzi Road to access industrial areas, even though a sign posted in advance states trucks must use Soda Creek Road.
“Nobody stops them. Dump trucks go through to dump off gravel or access the industrial area,” Hilton adds.
A representative from the city couldn’t be reached for comment.
