Touché to Editorial Page Editor Jim Boren (column Jan. 28) in regard to the shoddy street repairs that abound throughout our city.
Just say "no." Offer the contractors who want to bid on these jobs half up front for competent repairs and the rest upon completion of specified results. Pretty straight forward. What does an ordinance have to do with doing a job for which you are being paid? I think that is called accountability. Maybe our city fathers ought to peruse their dictionary sometime soon.
