Why the ongoing delays in building Nicomekl bridge?

Editor: Is there anyone else out there that finds it a bit strange that a two-lane bridge over the “mighty” Nicomekl River — a small creek most of the year — has taken construction crews some six months to complete? And as I write this, it isn’t for sure that this project is even done yet.

We, the gullible taxpayers, might just want to see an accounting (i.e. an audit), as to why it took so long, and how much it cost, in comparison to the original estimates.

And don’t even think about blaming it on a few “pipehangers” that were allegedly stolen (The Times, Feb. 11).

It seems to me that a lot of projects in our Langley Township are not properly  accounted for. It might just be time for a new slate of municipal government, and possibly an independent audit of the goings-on at the Township of Langley.

Please don’t bring up our ever-increasing property taxes, in the face of tough economic times.
