Where's the story about the whole intersection being reconstructed? It's in the process but what's the status? Yet the Patch continues to report these minor injury accidents, bulls crossing the road, ducks crossing the road, buses causing traffic delays. Inform the public as to how improvements are in progress and how the fire district spends tax funds. Shannon, when will you start reporting on how the fire district spends 11% of the property tax bills for people who live in the fire district. The spending of the tax dollars has a far bigger impact than these stories you post on ducks, bulls, and minor to no injury accidents. Next meeting is this Tuesday night. I doubt Deputy Fire Chief Jon Stratton will be so fast to call and tell you how they spent their money.

FF1921 can you clarify your 11% comment? The way it reads it doesn't seem so bad to me so I'm clearly not understanding it becasue based on thsi and some of your other posts you are clearly upset about something. I just can't figure out what. Even a link to a different article where you explain what you telling us would be appreciated.
