Letter: Let's have a referendum on better roads

Editor:

Why are we worried about spending money on a performing-arts centre when the roads and infrastructure in Kamloops are in dire need of repair?

I have contacted the city on many occasions, as have my neighbours, regarding the state of our alley, which is the only way of getting to our homes as there is no access or parking on Fortune.

I do not know how the city expects us to use this alleyway without complaining as it is ruining the undercarriage of our vehicles, especially when it is used on a constant basis. For the taxes we pay, we should have better and safer access.

This road has not had any repairs in the 14 years we have been here.

This is a safety issue as well as people cannot even walk down the alley because the surface is very uneven and unsafe, especially at night as there are no lights.

The city has been given money for infrastructure, not a performing-arts centre. Maybe taxpayers should have a referendum to demand better roads and access points to our properties.
