CC Public Works has been knowingly ignoring debris, trash, plastics, sands, rocks, and much more for quite some time on Vasco. I hope the Officer recovers quickly and hires an attorney. This is a result of poor public roadway maintenance and lack of direction from our Supervisors to keep Vasco safe and clean.

I agree. Vasco is a mess. There is all kind of random garbage on the road like an oven, mattress, and random metal bits to name a few. I hope the Officer recovers too. : ( Vasco is getting more dangerous everyday.

The real story is that a CHP officer was even on Vasco. When was the last time anyone saw them patrolling Vasco? Exactly!
