Fill the hole

A recent edition of the DRC tells us a great deal about why UNT has financial problems. The $2,900-plus spent on banners and T-shirts may not be a drop in the bucket as compared to the $83.5 million overdraft during the past 10 years and the $23 million budget overstatement, but it appears to be a total disregard for even misspending a single dollar.

It seems to me that it would be more prudent to just get the job done rather than providing a T-shirt saying we are going to get the job done. Did not Will Rogers once say, “If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging?”

UNT should stop digging and fill the hole.

Just wondering

1. Who or what committee or officials make decisions regarding the re-paving and repair of Denton city and county streets? Do we have a certified road/streets engineer or do we have city/county bureaucrats spending this money?

Many citizens are seeing perfectly good streets re-paved while crumbling streets receive little or no attention.

2. Why are city code enforcement officers running around willy-nilly citing residents for unkempt property while some city properties are in worse conditions?

3. Some city and county office building parking lots are filled with city/county-owned cars and trucks — no space for regular resident parking.

I suppose we residents will not receive answers to these questions, so we will continue wondering.
