Why no notifications about [construction company Amorello & Sons] tearing up Ash Street asphalt, cutting, digging, equipment blocking street, dust, noise, one way, narrow, dangerous lanes. The only plan for Ash Street was a sidewalk. The downtown project is out of control. Who is in charge? Nobody seems to be communicating the extent that DRAINAGE was going to be a major component of the project. It was all about beautification and alleviating traffic congestion. This project is turning out to be a nightmare for downtown businesses and residents.
