The deplorable condition of
Robbins’ streets is blamed on
the contractor (or contractors)
who put in sewers and water.
As a result of the digging and
failing to properly fill up holes
after the digging was finished
rain and snow have left muddy,
slushy holes in the streets and
across them so that driving is
hazardous and walking is a
king-size task.
As a consequence, the Board
of Trustees at the last Council
meeting voted to withhold all
or part of the last installment
of the payment to the contractor
responsible for this debacle.
Held in escrow is $80,000.00
