Sidney in PO due some paving, but not where reader wants

The in basket: Ken Hartung thinks Sidney Road in Port Orchard from Lippert Drive to its dead end at Stetson Place is long overdue for paving. He said “it looks like the paved from Tremont to Lippert and then they just quit. It is terrible.”

The out basket: Maybe so, but the city of Port Orchard believes some other streets to be more in need of spending its limited paving money on, says Mark Dorsey, its public works director.

“We hope in 2011 to overlay Sidney between Tremont and South Street, Sedgwick between Lowe’s and our westerly city limits (up to where the county paved just outside the city recently) .and possibly South Kitsap Boulevard if we have any remaining dollars.”

Work on Sidney from Lippert south isn’t even in the city’s six-year TIP (Transportation Improvement Plan) that looks ahead to 2016. Ken and anyone who agrees with him might make their views known to the city council near the end of the year when the TIP is updated each year.
