Water main breaks appear to be a daily routine for BWS. Unfortunantely, The repairs are nothing more than a bandage to the real problem of a system that has been in desperate disrepair. Repairs cost thousands of dollars in overtime to the C&C. Again, How can we justify spending money we do not have for a Train that only a few will be able to ride? Water repairs are Island wide! There are roads that need paving NOW that are not being maintained becasuse there is NO MONEY! The Train will derail the City!

Remember The Stimulus? What happened? That money was for "shovel ready projects" and we have plenty. Where did the money go?

SA....you should have a column dedicated to just water main breaks. Makes it easier for the public to know what roads are closed and for how long since this is turning into a daily event.

We can't keep our water mains from bursting and we want to build a rail? This city doesn't have the capability to keep it's necessary resources working right. Don't forget about the sewers we need to fix so they don't keep going into our water and causing more traffic delays. Stop the rail, fix our infrastructure, stop the mad rush to tax the people.
