BUZ LIVINGSTON: Road rage? We can’t afford to lose the A

Published: Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 05:03 PM.

Look what happens when you kick the can down the road. Bridges over the dune lakes would be sweet but unless we get some BP bucks, Walton County taxpayers will be on the hook.   

Patching 30A will cost taxpayers $200,000 minimum. When you develop a watershed what seems appropriate on paper, in reality, may not work so well. An oft-repeated mantra cites regulations as expensive and job-inhibiting. Sometimes in our haste to minimize or to work around regulations we run up unforeseen expenses. A stopped-up culvert didn’t cause 30A’s washout by itself but rather a series of decisions made over several years.  

Oh, yeah don’t shut the government down before any FEMA checks clear.
