SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – The pace of re-paving roads and filling potholes would pick up in San Francisco if voters approve Proposition B on the November ballot. There would also be money for bicycle and pedestrian safety in this $248 million bond measure.

Roughly one-half of San Francisco’s 805 miles of streets are in a state of disrepair, according to a city study. The bond money would help to fix some of those stretches of roadway, including adding disability curb ramps and other street redesigns with pedestrians and cyclists in mind.

“I fully recognize our streets need dollars, I get it. They desperately do,” conceded supervisor Sean Elsbernd. “I just don’t think this is the way to fund that work.”

He argues that filling potholes and the like should be a general taxpayer expense only.

Supervisor Scott Weiner supports the measure, saying this is the only way to get the job done.

KCBS’ Barbara Taylor Reports:

Proposition B requires two-thirds voter approval.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close their bad cases.
    The DEA have been stealing drugs from evidence lockup and reselling them. It has become a popular way in the Department of Justice’s DEA to make extra money.
    They also steal from suspects for which they have created fabricated or coerced heresay evidence.
    With some of the DEA suffering under mountains of credit card debt they have started to think outside the box.
