Will the city be proactive and spray for mosquitoes soon?
Now that kids aren't using the parks, can you use this time to fix, replace or innovate them?
Just curious why my family was kicked out of a city park while running/walking at 7:30am when the signage all over says the park closes at 7:45am on school days?? Then the maintenance men that kicked us out stood around at their city vehicle - no maintenance being done. Nice to see how our tax dollars are being spent!
