Our roads are going unmowed

I have a bone to pick! Just want to know why North Whidbey roads are not being mowed. I just saw the very large acreage field being mowed by Westgate and that is of no beneficial value -- safety or aesthetic.

We have new military coming on the Island and it sure would be nice that they can learn about our mile-high ditches on Fakkema, Frostad, Jones and Taylor (north and south). That’s an area where there is a lot of “no shoulder” driving, deer on the side of the roads and plain old speeding, etc.
