To the city leaders:
This is a situation that will be very expensive to fix. The condition of the Iowa Avenue roadway east of Center Street is such that your entire body and vehicle are jolted by the rough surface.
My proposal is to change the name of this section of road to Wash Board Avenue. Then, if motorists want the thrill of being jolted or finding any loose bolts or connections they will at least know what they are in for.
Think of it, thousands saved and all we need to do is make a few new signs and change the name on new maps as they are printed.
