Letter to the Editor: What's your opinion on road maintenance?

To the Editor:
Last year Allamakee County spent $900,000 for road rock. At the same time, Mr. Ridenour said that white line striping would cost $50,000 but it would be sufficient for two years. On March 2, Mr. Ridenour stated that white line striping would double the cost of striping, around $68,000. He did not say if that was for one year or two years. A Minnesota company three and a half hours away received the contract for the work. What’s your opinion?
