Can't somebody in town government clean up some of the places here in town? I'm all for personal liberties but good gosh some of these places are junky. It's embarassing. What about a junk law. I thought we had one.

we do have a junk law in Lindley. It is up to the code enforcement officer to enforce the law,he can issue a summons to town court. The problem is many times when he does visit offenders homes no one answers the door. It is costly to have summons delivered by law enforcement or others but it is being done. One suggestion is to add the cost of delivery to the cost of the fine. It also is a community responsiblity. Attend meetings and voice your concerns. It is very easy to sit back and complain instead of getting involved. Help the officials by identifying problems.

What happens when the code enforcement officer serves a summons? Do the guilty parties pay a fine and that's it? How does a summons force people to clean up their place?

LINDLEY ROADS:It seems as if for the last 8 years we have been buying all this new equiptment for the dirt roads here in lindley.Thats a good thing,but what is not good is our automobiles.The fact that spending as little as possable to fix the roads and to buy all this new equiptment has killed about four of my vehicles in about 8 years.Not only are we paying ridiculous taxes here,we are spending stupid amounts of money to fix our vehicles because of the lindley road dept.Insted of scraping the top off the pot holes,dig under them after all your right there,do it right the first time.I also remember one year that you needed a 4 wheel drive,just to get to the highway.Remember? someone put river loam on the back roads and in the spring the mud was a foot deep.Yeah! that was fun three exuast pipes later.Not to mention alignments, broken tire belts and the hit the drive train your vechicle has taken.For this matter i have not only paid taxes,but do to the higheway deptment, i have been drown in expences of automobiles.It sure is getting harder to afford to live here.

To last comment-well said. Road Warrior's vehicle might last longer if he wasn't trying to see how fast he could go and how much dirt and dust he can create. Besides if road was paved-he'd go even faster.

To Road Warrior Have you noticed the potholes on City of Corning roads(00ps streets)Note Park Ave especially They are paved not dirt . Noticed there is a nice,big pothole on Lindley bridge(County,too)At least our highway crews plow the roads after a snow storm. Try navigating some of Corning City Streets following a big snow storm.

The new equipment was bought to replace worn out equipment that was costing the town more to maintain than the equipment was worth. As for fixing our roads -all of our roads need regraveling. If you were in the position of having to purchase gravel in our area you would understand the difficulty we have been having finding any gravel to use. As for the grader just scraping the tops of the potholes and filling them in- the reason for this is in order to put the scarfires down and dig the potholes out, we would be into the road bed due to lack of gravel, creating much worse pot holes than the ones that are filled in with what dirt is scraped up. As for putting river loam on the roads- I have never heard of that. Because of the lack of available gravel, sometimes the quality of the gravel the town has to use has a lot of clay in it which will cause sloppy conditions. As for cars scraping the bottom on the road, if you check any town that has dirt roads and extremely wet season,it will have the same soft spots and ruts as our town.

To the people complaining about the roads and road department. Have you bothered to find out how much base stone, gravel and work hours have been put in to aleviating the soft spots on several roads such as, Bell Hill, Upper Steamtown, Lower Mulholland, Morgan Creek, and Watson Creek? Just to name a few. The sore spots that appeared every spring in the areas worked have been fixed and not a problem since. Also, extensive ditching has been done to help eliminate many of these soft spots that need gravel. In just weeks past the highway dept. has been hauling bank run gravel mixed with stone to potential soft spots in an effort to eliminate rutty areas this spring.

If you think we have road problems-check out the cost of repairing the section of Route 15 in Pennsylvania near the new rest area. Now that's a problem !!!!
Apparently,the last glacier to pass through this area left unstable "clay" soil which likes to ooooze when water gets under it..
Mother nature has ways of letting us know she is still "boss lady"..
