Biden site visitors jams will not likely be skipped
I’m a Northern New Castle County resident who joyfully appears ahead to our beloved Joe Biden getting over the reins in Washington.
However, my exhilaration is not just for the same purpose as that of most Delawareans. I am annoyed at remaining caught in street blocks, happening every other working day or so, due to the fact Biden’s 20-additionally vehicle entourage has to travel non-stop at 50 mph to get him to downtown or the riverfront for his talking engagements, and of program the return excursion back household. Pretty much each other day one particular can see two or 3 State Law enforcement cars just “hanging out” at each individual and each one of the intersections alongside Barley Mill Highway, Kennett Pike, Powder Mill Street, SR 141, Harmony Pike, etc. waiting around for the phrase to halt traffic for the speeding “train” of police, politicians, staff and push personnel.
I have witnessed the parade fly by intersections with sirens screeching at what appears to be unsafe speeds, and your newspaper has described at the very least 5 website traffic incidents have happened. The squander of taxpayer revenue to help the law enforcement existence is a further burden.
Mr. President-elect, we would like you well in D.C. Godspeed, but properly!

Wilmington 311 program raises questions
In August, the Town of Wilmington disclosed they produced a new complaint process whereby metropolis residents can report code violations/complaints by both phoning 311 or reporting it on-line at www.wilmingtonde.gov/311.
I have employed the online characteristic numerous occasions. Each individual time I do, I get a criticism selection. In checking the status of the problems on the net a pair of months later, I see that most of the grievances are labeled as “Solved.” Nevertheless, the problems nevertheless exist.
Emailing the town finance fepartment on a number of occasions, concerning why most of these complaints are labeled “solved” when they evidently are not solved, has been fruitless. I get the experience this new system is a sham to town citizens.
