Many of you have contacted Delegate Dave Albo’s office about the recent need for mowing along the medians and sides of the road. Because of VDOT’s budget shortfalls, Delegate Albo, Supervisor Herrity, and many others hit the streets themselves to mow the grass. Check it out in the Springfield Connection.
I recently received a response from the Virginia Department of Transportation regarding the mowing along Old Keene Mill Road along with the medians throughout my district. Unfortunately, VDOT has new maintenance policies due to their recent budget shortfalls. Now, only safety issues will be addressed instead of also addressing aesthetic issues, such as long grass on the medians.
The good news is that Old Keene Mill Road is scheduled for mowing during the week of August 24, 2009. This will solve the issue of long grass for awhile.
If I can be of any other assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Yours for good government,
David B. Albo
