June 5, 2013

Should the City of Warren install orange snow fencing to protect the planters on Pennsylvania Avenue during the Fourth of July parade? Should volunteers police the grounds? City staff has another......

Sickofit, I'm curious about something. So you are accusing the members of the RDA for being thugs on a volunteer basis? When was the last time you attended an RDA meeting? Did you express your concerns with them? What did they say to you? I'm pretty sure I can answer these questions on your behalf and be correct on each one.

How interesting. There is never a shortage of people to criticize City officials no matter what they do, yet there were only two people running for four Council seats in the Primary last month. If you don't like how the City is being governed, then get out of your computer chair and circulate some petitions for the Fall election.

Re-route the parade to protect the precious planters from the taxpaying vandals! I'm sure that will be the next brilliant suggestion from the city staff, who are by the way, paid by those very same taxpayers.

Hire four or so rent-a-cops, perhaps from neighboring townships, to stand there and haul any drunks or disruptive people off to jail. Cuff them to light poles until the parade traffic has eased, just for the added humiliation. Cite the parents when children are disruptive. Call out the National Guard. Sound the Alarum! To Horse, to Horse!

I like the idea of the flags, but wasn't it last year or was it the year before they didn't even manage to get flags on the poles for the 4th

Perhaps they should have mulled over all the possibilities of them being ruined or people getting hurt during said events prior to purchasing and installing these planters. Perhaps they will police them and fine or convict anyone who might do the damage much like they plan to do with the fountain.. pathetic.

I am going to agree with the first comment. You are thinking too hard. Why do you think we are going to destroy the planters. Most of us are good respectful people out to enjoy the day and the parade with our family and friends. Destroying the planters is the last thing on our minds. Please just leave the planters as they are and let us enjoy them as well.

Am I missing something? Have the planters been ruined in the past? Seems like there is an awful lot of worrying about what might happen to these planters that were installed for the public to enjoy. Do they think the public are all drunks and will stumble through them?
