HAS WILDOMAR BITTEN OFF MORE THAN IT CAN CHEW

Work has been completed on the crack sealing portion of a recent project to further the life of Wildomar streets. Instead of concentrating these efforts to a smaller portion of town and doing a quality job the city has chosen to spread the effort beyond its ability to watch over it.
Photographic evident shows numerous areas which call into question the preparation of cracks requiring sealing and the proper application of such materials.

Also questionable is the decision to apply crack sealer only in an area of town that clearly needs a more extensive repair job, such as grinding and application of a leveling course after base repair.

This is in an area where crack sealing only is to be done.

Its apparent that quality is not job one. This whole process is nothing more than dressing up a city in the emperor’s new clothes.

For those that have doubts about what the contract states, it (the contract) can be found in the City Council Agenda Packet for September 10, 2014 Agenda Item 3.3 starting on page 810 of 980.

WILDOMAR INSPECT THYSELF

With the city short on funds for inspecting work performed the citizens need to lend a hand and make sure money is well spent an the job done job correctly.

This city is about to embark on an almost half a million dollar ($481,598.05) project to slurry seal, crack seal, base repair and applying a leveling course were necessary on 63 streets totaling about 10 miles of roadway in one of the older neighborhoods of tract homes commonly referred to as Windsong Valley.

Several areas need to be watched carefully.
1. Cleaning of the roadway, Dirt reduces the bond between the sealcoat and the pavement. The sealer will adhere to the dirt…but the dirt won’t adhere to the pavement.
2. Cracks need to be cleaned completely and routed properly. See photo of cities instructions to the contractor regarding the routing and filling of cracks.

(A Quick reference for width and depth is a penny which is 3/4 inches in diameter, routed cracks should accept a penny.)
3. All cracks routed or not should be blown out with hot air to remove all loose dirt debris and grass.
