Salary Sam sent us this idea for a new topic. It was so concise and to the point we are posting it as he wrote it.
Since Knot Head keeps dragging the Court House problem into everything, maybe a thread is needed on that issue.
No one has blamed Lord Lou for the weather. The press release MagazzuWatch printed clearly said that. What the democrat controlled board is being questioned on is the design of the court house, their failure to hold the contractors responsible for the shoddy construction and questions of maintenance and common sense.
I think someone mentioned that a few hundred dollars of grading could have prevented the problem. You know grading. You shape the dirt to get the water to go where you want it to go. There are also rumors that the rain drainage systems of the buildings were bringing water down into the window well areas.
Then there is the question of why the windows failed so catastrophically. Is the Democrat board going to aggressively investigate that? Probably not. They’ve already let the statute of limitations pass against the contractors and can’t get them to take responsibility. If we were to find out that the windows were not the correct windows for that situation or were improperly installed it would just make the Dems look bad.
Let’s call for that engineering study. What type of windows should have been used in such an installation? What windows were actually used? How should they have been installed? How were they installed? Maybe all of that was done correctly. Maybe the failure of the windows was due to aging. Who knows? But if this flood had happened 5 months after the building was occupied Lord Lou would have been blaming someone. It would be very interesting to know if, for no other reason, to give the county guidance as to which professionals and contractors to use in the future.
