The streets of CD13 (by the numbers)

I usually try to achieve some degree of written eloquence in my descriptions of life in and outside of the 13th district, but sometimes you just want to see the raw numbers. Courtesy of the BOSS (Bureau of Street Services, who performed all of the following), here are the statistics on street resurfacing, storm repair and tree care from the district for the fiscal year that ran from July 1, 2004 to June 30th, 2005.

  • 4.3 miles of streets resurfaced
  • 19.06 miles slurry sealed
  • 7,940 pot holes repaired
  • 1,372 storm-related repairs conducted
  • 3,402 trees trimmed
  • 233 tree stumps removed
  • 235 trees removed
  • 140 trees pruned
  • 4.72 miles of sidewalks replaced
  • 64 ADA sidewalk ramps constructed
Thank the BOSS—as well as those of yourselves who called in needed repairs to 3-1-1 or to my field office.
