Sorry if this is a re-post but wanted to share this with anyone who maybe hasn't read it:
This original approach to road work comes from the German town of Niederzimmern. The city was faced with a lack of funds for fixing the existing roads, so city officials began to sell individual potholes in an attempt to spare the treasury. Each filled pothole was accompanied by a sign stating the name of the individual or company whose funds allowed the restoration of that part of the road. The programme was such a hit that there were even several buyers from outside of Germany.First, the surfaces on Krakow's roads will be renovated main streets - The idea is to have been patched as soon as possible - Fixed will also be the road , in the opinion of our inspectors pose the greatest problems for drivers. Dangerous holes appeared , among others, Kotlarski on the bridge and on the street. Kamieńskiego . Even worse look smaller streets in housing estates such as . Francesco Nullo . City officials say , however, directly on patching many rifts may not be enough money. - After amendment of councilors reduced amount for maintenance of roads, for one quarter of an average maximum of 350-400 thousand . zł, a little in relation to the needs.
In my opinion I think it is bl*ody cheeky. I just want some tiny little bit of the tax I pay here in Poland to be spent on the roads. As city initiatives go, I think this is a rubbish idea.
