I was born in Placentia 57 years ago, live in Mount Pearl (over 20 years), but I still call Placentia home.
I made a visit home for a day this Christmas. All was good till I made an attempt to drive from Dunville to Placentia and then to South East! I was in shock at the condition of the roads (for lack of a better word)!
There was more potholes than there was good asphalt! I was giddy from trying to avoid beating the crap out of my car!
Your mayor and council should be ashamed of the condition of the 'public' roads! I guess they don't know that if they are made aware of a pothole and you damage your car, they would be on the hook for repairs!
So I ask, exactly what are council spending your money on? Certainly not roads! The condition is a disgrace!
