Everett’s Infrastructure Showing It’s Age and Weakness

Over the past few days we’ve gotten several email alerts to water main breaks, mostly in North Everett but there have been many other between Evergreen/Casino all the way over by the Boeing Plant.

I guess it’s only news when it affects the wealthy end of town.

I have gotten reports from homeowners that they have had breaks as well throughout the years, and most of those homeowners have never been compensated for the damage to their homes

There have been then 12 since early December, way before the cold snap hit.

That is Everett’s answer to the infrastructure maintenance, wait til it breaks, then fix it and let citizens foot the bill both ways. Luckily it’s not often that folks homes are damaged but enough that they should be paying for it.

Please quit voting the same people in who are more interested in helping their developer friends and getting their own payoffs then in protecting the things and city that we all work so hard for.

    “voting the same people in who are more interested in helping their developer friends and getting their own payoffs”
    Its all about funnelling tax revenue to projects of developers that own them. That’s the Everett Way!

      Don’t forget all the awards they are giving to all of their campaign contributors. It wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t so blatant but the citizens need to vote smarter, these folks didn’t get here by themselves. Hopefully they’ll learn.
