To the editor:
The major functions of a city are to provide and maintain infrastructure (roads, water, sewage, etc.) and protection services (fire and police). Sidewalks and bicycle lanes are secondary items. Any money for this purpose should be for maintenance of current sidewalks and bicycles lanes. Old residential neighborhoods that have not had these in the last 50-plus years still do not need them. I live in a neighborhood that is 60-plus years old and does not have or need sidewalks. What we do need is a law requiring cars to park on one side of the street only. What we also need is licensing to cover all vehicles (cars, trucks, motorcycles AND bicycles) as well as all operators/drivers of said vehicles.
