If the city of Modesto would send out (in The Bee) a notice informing citizens as to why Briggsmore Avenue was selected for sidewalk work, rather than spending our tax dollars somewhere else, people would feel a little better about that choice. As it is, everyone who drives that road asks themselves, “Have I ever seen anyone walking this route?” In 40-plus years, I’ve seen maybe three. Just a word or two of explanation, that’s all, so we don’t go around thinking our city leaders are just plain stupid.
