If Mike Smith had his way….
If the DOT’s Mike Smith had his way, there will be no more rain this summer! In fact, the state’s resident maintenance engineer showed a sense of dry humor before yesterday’s meeting of the Walhalla Rotary Club when, with a poker face, he said rain has been cancelled the rest of the summer. That’s a reference to DOT maintenance falling behind in grass cutting, weed eating, and various projects. But DOT is not only impacted by the weather. Tight budgets are a factor, also, he says.
