Get those moles out. Got to dig 'em roads..

Recently I have been complaining to my friends how the muncipality (county management...whats the word people here in US?) is not very different.

My friends argue .."oh its different, look at the powerful machines they have? In India they would have 50 people working on it!"

I argue back, saying "Oh but they have 5 people staring at the machine digging the road!"

Agreed, thats not much of an arguement, cause they do get things done faster here. But you cannot disagree with me when I tell you that they really like to work on the roads, as they do in Bombay!

Take for instance this road I walk by everyday to work. In last 5 years they have dug it up three times for sure. For various reasons. They dig to put new electric cables..
they dig to beautify the road...and my god...the latest..They dig to make the road NARROWER!!!

I guess the word that you're looking for is "Public Works Department".
