Coun. Albert Hoglund tried to take City Council down the road of writing a letter of complaint to highways contractor Mainroad, but he couldn’t convince fellow councillors to travel with him.
Hoglund suggested that the City write a letter stating displeasure to Mainroad, which has come under fire lately for what some people think is inadequate maintenance of East Kootenay highways.
However, he couldn’t get a seconder for his motion. Most Councillors said that driving to conditions was required and the contractor did all they could.
Hoglund did not agree, saying many people felt the contractor should have been out more often but, “if everyone is happy with the highways”, he couldn’t go forward.
