TUCSON - A former state representative wants something to be done about the condition of roads in Tucson and Pima county, and has an idea of how to do it.
John Kromko is proposing all future local road building projects be put on hold for the next two years and to use that money instead to repair the potholes in the roads that are already built, city and countywide.
He argues while millions are allocated each year to road construction through the Regional Transportation Authority, virtually nothing is budgeted for road maintenance.
"We're asking people to ask the supervisors to put an amendment on the ballot that we can vote on in November that would allow the RTA money to be used to fix the roads," Kromko stated in a news release.
