Good morning PMLE 5, 6, 7 Residents. This message is going out to keep all apprised of what the board is doing, instead of allowing members come to their own conclusions, or get on Facebook to rant/carry on/feel like the board is neglecting it's duties, etc. We'd rather you all had factual information.
We have been, and are currently soliciting quotes for roadwork within the community. We've received some quotes, and are awaiting a couple more, at this time. These quotes are for all available options, including Mountain Top Drive and various other roads in poor shape. As we've communicated, spring months are when these discussions, running our ad in the paper, vendor engagements and quotes happen. It's no different than any previous year. Once we receive and review all quotes, we'll come to a determination, and set dates for roadwork. When all of this is complete, we will put out another notice letting the community know.
Further, we are fully aware that Mountain Top Drive is in dire need of pothole repair, as is the case every single year for the last 6-7 years. We are also aware that there are other roads in the community that need some attention as well.
Every single year there are definitive issues to tackle. Snow and Ice complaints occur during the winter months and once the winter is over, the pothole/roadwork complaints take root, like clockwork. We'd like to remind all members, that in previous years, roadwork, in general, didn't get done until right before the winter months, typically the fall months. In the last 3 years we've changed that to start these earlier in the year. No matter when we start the roadwork, there will always be a complaint because we didn't do it on their time, or to their expectations. Further as one of our members, so eloquently put it, this isn't NJDOT, NYDOT or even PENNDOT and we have operate on a very limited budget to tackle over 10 miles of roads. The Board is, and has been, proactively gathering quotes so we can make our decision, soon.
We're asking for a little patience, folks. We'll have a determination and an announcement as soon as possible.
