There’s no doubt Petaluma’s pot-holed roads are in dire shape, but residents disagree over what the best solution for this long-standing problem should be.

Here were some of the comments.

––

“They should fund the road repairs with the money that they are already collecting for road repair. If they weren’t diverting it elsewhere there would be no problem.”

––

“Remove all the illegally parked vehicles from the neighborhoods and fine the owners.”

––

“As a homeowner, I’m not in favor of additional taxes, but I want key infrastructure like roads to be well maintained. I suggest a short-term sales tax to get roads reconditioned, then a longer term parcel tax to keep them in good shape.”

––

Quit spending money on grants to non profits. Quit spending money on unreasonable employee pay, benefits and retirement. Become fiscally responsible to fund essential services.”

––

“Tax bicycles sales and repairs to fund bike lanes and paths. Also, require license plates for bikes with a annual fee like car licenses.”

––

“With the amount of money spent and collected by candidates for electedoffice here in Petaluma, a simple 15 percent tax on all political contributions should do the trick, and get our streets fixed in no time at all.”

––

“ Let the City Council take care of the basic infrastructure and not waste money on art commissions, lawsuits and the like.”
