Apply some pressure, get the street work done

Apply some pressure, get the street work done
I would like to start this letter with the positive.
First I would like to say I am glad that our streets are being poured with concrete because I believe it will last much longer and it won't need to be seal coated every few years.
I am also not going to complain about our city council because there is nothing they could do to push the contractor along.
Now the complaint. I live on 20th St. Our street has been torn up for over two months with no end in sight. Another three weeks have gone by and nothing has been done.
If the street is poured this week (Oct. 15), which I don't believe will happen, we still won't be able to drive on it for another three weeks and our driveways cannot be finished, or used, for another three weeks.
We have had to drive on school property and walk across our neighbor's lawn for the past two months, carrying everything from salt bags to groceries, back and forth.
We had almost perfect weather all summer and now winter is coming. I am wondering what happens when winter hits and the snow starts flying.
This is crazy and it's time for somebody to apply some pressure and get this job done.
