This sidewalk is on Algoma Street. It was constructed late summer 2012. It is brand new. There is no reason for that water to sit there. Water on sidewalks should drain. Its a matter of engineering, planning, design and construction. Obviously, the City of Thunder Bay has ineffective quality control, if it has any at all.
If the City of Thunder Bay did not do everything possible to construct something as simple as a sidewalk that is safe for people to walk on at all times of the year, then what makes anyone think that it did everything possible over the years to prevent the shit geyser incident in the East End back in May 27/28?
I believe that people are not part of the equation when it comes to maintaining city infrastructure. Actually, that is not completely true. People are part of the equation when it comes to paying. Paying for clean-up, lawsuits or infrastructure replacement.
Why is it that every year, the City of Thunder Bay produces a poll that shows citizens are satisfied or very satisfied with city services? I have no idea who the polling company is talking to. Obviously, they are people who do not ever leave their homes.
