Mayor: Obstructed view at roundabout intentional

You may also like...

  • I think we should spend as much money on roundabout view obstructions as possible. It’s just tax money and boondoggles. What campaign contributor did we pay for this monstrosity? Yet we can’t even afford a painted crosswalk at a dangerous intersection like 126th and Auman. Let alone warning lights! And remember a stoplight is not cost effective at that location “no matter the price”! Even though the Street Department had plenty of lights in stock and we installed them for short periods of time in many areas during the US 31 construction. Not an option where the mayor polls badly… Ironic there are still 44 other Stop SIgns around Carmel that ALSO don’t meet MINIMUM STANDARDS for Stop Signs. Largely East of Keystone. Lets see. Sue Finkam introduced the plan to remove and Jeff Worrell campaigned on it? Hmm?

    How well does the Mayor keep his commitments? Here is his safety plan for 126th & Auman.

    Big on promises short on delivery, Guess that’s why he lives at City Center eh?

      I guess when your priorities are impressing people in France, or Germany, or whatever country you’re jetting off to this week, your humble little city gets the short end of the deal. The people who put this man in office are obviously happy with the opulence and extravagant spending on things we really don’t need, while others in this city suffer. Just part of the Carmel experience. Perhaps this is what Jim is talking about when he says people are about to experience something very special.

    I’d rather see the city fix the dilapidated sewer systems that have routinely flood homes with raw sewage for at least the last decade. That would be responsible, and some would dare say, their job.

    I’d rather see the city fix the dilapidated sewer systems that have
    routinely flooded homes with raw sewage for at least the last decade (That I personally know of).
    That would be responsible, and some would dare say, their job, but what do I know, I’m just a taxpayer.

    The fact that so much money is spent on needless statues, landscaping, and other unnecessary items rather than addressing important issues such as those mentioned above is wrong. Just. Plain. Wrong. It shows that the mayor is more interested in pretending to be sophisticated and worldly than in taking care of the people in the town he has been hired to work for. I also find appalling that this town has so many city officials who are nothing but yes men and will do the mayor’s bidding just for a share in his power.

    These comments are so banal. I live in Westfield and work in. Carmel. I feel like I am part of something special when I drive in Carmel. Why. Because of all the special touches Like this. You guys should buy some real art for home sometime. Or maybe you have, it’s the same idea. Money isn’t just for necessities, it’s for generosity as well. Besides, the amount of gas and time these roundabouts save the public easily pay for this. Years ago my commute to the office in Carmel was almost double what it is now. From 22 minutes to 12, two trips a day is 20 minutes of my life everyday. Celebrate those beautiful roundabouts!!!
