Here is another posting from a guest blogger:
Well, since you offered to post our blog reports from around town, here is one for ya.
While getting my coffee at Fanagle the Bagel in ursula Plaza this morning, I had the misfortune to find one of our fine DPW employees ordering his breakfast (pork roll, egg and cheese on a plain bagel with a large coffee) at 8:50 AM.
Sitting at the curb, in the FIRE ZONE, was his truck No. 112, RUNNING with no one else in the truck.
As you may be able to tell from the picture I snapped on my cell phone right before he saw me taking the pic and SPED OFF, there are plenty of spots in the parking lot including the VERY FIRST SPOT in the lot--of course none are quite as convenient as illegally parking in the fire zone out front with your engine running.
I guess DPW has all the money in the world and can afford to leave their trucks running while they enjoy breakfast on city time instead of working.
I wonder if and when this crap will ever end.
I also wonder if the city fathers will ever respond to a post like this. . .
Guess time will tell.
