I hardly believe that the two did the all the digging, while the other two did all the watching. Safety & other stuff kept all those fellows busy that whole time.

Don't blame current council or administration for this unless they held office or a council seat years ago. Unfortunately today's taxpayers and council are forced to cover what those before them refused to responsibly address.
