Not All It's Cracked Up To Be

March 2007


For years the main entrance to the Plattsburgh City Library kept falling apart.  Some patchwork would be applied to the bad spots in the concrete steps.  And those repairs would fail, again and again.

In October 2015 the city kicked off a major renovation project for the front steps, the old ripped out to make way for the new.  The problem was fixed -- or so it seemed.

Today I noticed a jagged continuous crack in the steps from top to bottom. Quality work for top dollar.  This should cement a good relationship between taxpayers and the city.

By the way Plattsburgh City has been awarded to $10 million grant to renovate downtown.

The library steps replacement project was paid for with a 75% matching grant from the New York State Library Construction program.

All taxpayer money. And with that crack happening so soon money not well spent.
