(Kristin Szakos) So it would be up by, theoretically, July firstish?
(Jim Tolbert) Depending on the work load of Public Service you know they would have to schedule we would give
them a work order um if if we could gamble and go ahead and order some flexposts cause we have places we could
use them anyways so we can go ahead and figure out how many of them we need, order them so we can move faster.
(Kristin Szakos) I think that would be good, if people are walking through there to get to the pool, it is summertime,
lot of people walking I think.

truck gravity trap
About once a month we catch a truck here. The City has signs posted discouraging
18 wheelers from rolling through the neighborhood, but the signs are advisory in nature, no bite.
But for those who venture in, there are gravity traps, constrained roadways
and Crazy neighbors with pitchforks
