Area under Review for City Journal Entry 5

As you all know the Department of Planning Services drafted a Land-Use Plan for the City of GRUNEN. That Plan provided for a main road for the trough traffic. You can have a look at the plan here.

Our honorable mayor pulled some strings, contacted old friends and came up with the idea to apply tarmac to that future main road. Though statistics and traffic projection showed no need for such action for the next ten years. But our honorable mayor solved this minor hindrance by simply adding a “0″ behind every figure of the projection before it was published. (Later he would argue that this was a printing error.)

Eventually tarmac was applied to the streets by “TT Trembling Tarmac Ltd”. Why they call themselfs Trembling Tarmac? Watch those trembling pictures of the tarmac works:

For all of you interested in having a closer look to the tarmac works: click on the pictures below.

Eventually some questions remain unanswered. Why didn’t the city council invite for a bid? Why did the actual construction cost exceed the cost-projection by 67%? And why the heck do the CEO of TT Trembling Tarmac Ldt. and our honorable mayor have the same surname?

Please do comment heavilly and stay tuned for further updates!
