Tarentum sidewalks II

I can't believe anyone thinks the new sidewalks in downtown Tarentum are better than the old ones. Who is responsible for this sheer stupidity?

Whoever it is, every single one of them needs — as my grandma used to say — a good swift kick in the pants. This is a waste of time, money and energy.

I realize the sidewalks needed to be fixed, but the borough should've fixed what was already there, not added new ones and widened them.

How about fixing the streets, or doesn't anyone care about them? Nah, that would make too much sense.
