    Whenever we hear words such as “the COT recently retained a consultant” the COT ALERTsiren, bells, and whistles should all go off at once.
    History has taught us that under the above conditions the COT only hires insider usual suspect consultants with dubious qualifications and bases their decision to hire on the possibility of future campaign contributions, kickbacks, and other nefarious ill gotten gain.
    Well Gary Yorden had those rubber duckies floating down paved streets in those TAPP advertisements…so why not choose him????

  2. I’d like to see the county do this, which is where our worst roads are located. They’d have to add categories for “Extremely Poor” and “Barely Passable” for some of the roads down near Woodville, and out Blountstown Highway.

    1. 4287 miles * (20 / 5280) miles = 16 square miles.

      This is assuming most roads are two lanes, each 10 ft wide. Of course some roads are wider, but most are not. So round it up to 20 total square miles of roadway. That leaves 80 square miles for buildings and land. Sounds about right to me… look out your window inside city limits. Do you see a roadway?
