Backyard chickens, street pothole issues need resolved

This is sort of like “Soldotna vs. Kenai” in my opinion. Which is worse? The “backyard chickens” ongoing discussion in Kenai, or the major potholes in Soldotna’s city streets? I definitely would not want up to a dozen chickens in my neighbors yards! What would be next? Little pigs that grow up and turn into hogs, or calves that turn into full grown cattle, or maybe a pony that matures into a full blooded horse? I think not. If a person actually wants “farm animals” in their back yard, why don’t they buy property in the country and not within city limits? Moving on to the “pothole streets” – ever drive up or down Binkley Street (just to name one of many) in Soldotna? It’s like playing a game of dodge ball, and if you meet a vehicle from the opposite direction, a lot of times you’re unable to “dodge the bullet” so to speak and drive right into a huge pothole. Who’s going to pay for your tire and/or vehicle repair when its damaged from the potholes? Or would your vehicle insurance cover it if you caused an accident because you were on the wrong side of the street trying to avoid a huge pothole? Let’s get real, both of these issues seem to be very relevant occurrences in our local cities. Come on council members, do something, get these issues resolved.
