Summer sure has flown by. The school year is upon us, and I want to remind everyone that it will be very busy around the schools, so please drive carefully and keep an eye out for pedestrians.
For all of you who ride bike, please take note that the rules of the road are the same for you as for a car. This means you are to stop at stop signs and red lights and obey all traffic laws at all hours of the day. You do not have the same rights as a pedestrian.
I almost ran over two people early one morning on my way to the PACC; I had a green light and they had a red, but ran through it. Luckily, I saw them and was able to stop. We all need to share the road and obey the laws.
The city has been kept clean for the most part this summer, but there are some exceptions we’ve been dealing with.
The mess that occurs around the recycling area is very upsetting. There is no reason for garbage floating around in that area. The cardboard is to go inside the bins. If it doesn’t fit, break it down so it does. I was over there the other day and I broke some cardboard down and put it inside. Styrofoam is not to be placed on the ground or inside; this is to go in your garbage. This area is not a dumping ground.
It is the time of year where we are going over the budget, and we will do our best to keep it as low as we can.
Until next time.
