It is great that an inspector found the damage and erosion to the Lake Manatee Dam that could have caused catastrophic damage to our community.
My question is: Has anybody else wondered how the dam got so bad, when was it last inspected, who inspected it last, if it was inspected why was it allowed to get to this state?
They say it will only cost from $3 million to $6 million to repair! That amount of erosion and damage doesn't happen overnight.
It's sad that our local government allows such things to occur. Where were the inspectors and their supervisors all this time?
This is another instance where government oversights have occurred.
No, it is not just money. It's starting to affect people both personally and financially. The government is supposed to protect the citizens.
Someone needs to be held accountable!
