The Arkansas City manager and commission should listen to area residents. Instead of hiring a company to tell you what they recommend for our city streets, why don’t you ask the people of Ark City? They don’t drive in this town.

First of all, Kansas Avenue does not need to be three lanes. It’s about the best street we have, except for the bumps on the north side at Fourth and Seventh Streets, which have been there for more than 10 years.

Why don’t you fix the potholes on Summit Street and the thru-streets A Street and Eighth Street? Makes me wonder if any of you drive in Ark City. I drive these streets every day. Maybe we need some new people in office.
