Post makes correction to minutes

Kent councillor clarifies his opposition to large repaving project

Minutes of the August 20 Kent council meeting had to be changed slightly, due to a misunderstanding of one councillor’s opposition.

When council voted on the Ashton Road reconstruction that is scheduled to take place, Councillor Duane Post was recorded in the minutes as opposing the project.

However, during Monday’s meeting Councillor Holger Schwichtenberg said he didn’t recall Post voting against the project.

“I don’t remember me voting against it, either,” Post replied. “I’m not opposed to the paving of it, I’m only opposed to the scope of the work that needs to be done. I don’t think it needs to be so extensive.”

The project will take about six weeks to complete, and will include a full reconstruction of the road due to extensive surface cracking and pavement patching.
