Salina City Manager Jason Gage joined in on the KSAL Morning News Tuesday and reiterated his call for Saline County to take a new path in solving a disagreement on maintenance over two roads that lead to the landfill.

“Lift the lawsuit on the issue and we will focus in on both the road annexation question and for the county’s benefit the funding of those roads to the landfill, both of them.” Gage said.

Over the past six years the City of Salina and Saline County have been unable to reach an agreement on upkeep for portions of Water Well Road and Burma Road as main arteries to the city owned land fill.

The lawsuit attempts to bring a common understanding to a state statute and activate the city to annex portions of the county roads that abut the city limits.

Gage contends the legal wrangling is a waste of taxpayers money and is being used as leverage.

“It’s not a friendly lawsuit and should never be characterized that way,” he said.

Hey Gage why take on more roads when you cannot keep up what you have? Then there is the fixing of the bridge on Greeley that keeps being ignored. Also Gage is getting involved with that gym not wasting peoples money? How about spending 13 million on the bi-center and it sits empty so to see entertainment we have to drive to Wichita. Gage all you want to do is keep raising taxes for pet projects and cover it up by saying your going to fix roads. Tell us taxpayers a better story or better yet resign your position.
