The city council will consider renovating this unsightly soundwall.

When the Elk Grove City Council meets this Wednesday night, one of the items they will be considering is $1.5 million soundwall renovation project.

The project is being proposed to replace a hodge-podge of sound walls located on East Stockton Blvd between the Elk Grove Regional park and Valley Oak Way. The original wall was constructed with metal sheets but now is a collection of old garage doors and other unsightly materials.

The meeting starts at 6:00 p.m.

Let's see, which Councilmember's district is that in? Never mind....which home builder closely related to a Councilmember built that housing tract but was never required to put in a wall? never mind...

Given that all of the above is oh so true, though the two council members in question would like you to forget their close affiliations. . .the sound wall is going to be pushed out so that it will be on city property.

So the city, meaning us taxpayers, will be liable for any and all lawsuits that seem to be coming our way more and more these days.

By the actions of the city council, we are rolling in something alright, and it isn't dough!

Hopefully all those tourists entering the city of Elk Grove from the south will keep that $1.5 Million dollar Soundwall in mind and not notice all the foreclosed homes, empty storefronts, streets where you can hardly see the line markers at night as they stop for lunch or dinner at Taco Bell or KFC and then on for some shopping at Target or Walmart.

What in the h-- is going on at city hall? Has everyone gone completely bonkers? Has no one told them the economy is in the PITS? I think we could do with a little cheaper Soundwall.

Don't bet on the lawsuits...not a good track record on that one

Isn't there supposed to be some sort of set back for fences from the street? I may be wrong, but I thought it was 5 feet from the curb. If they build the new wall right at the sidewalk they would be violating that ordinance, would't they?
