    In Mid March I watched with a giggle as the City Street Sweeper was sweeping S. Pierce way out by the industrial Park. Picking up the sand I assume???? Then two or three weeks later I watched with a giggle again, as the mains in the S/W quadrant were being flushed. Yup you guessed it, the streets HAVE NOT YET been swept and all that SAND was flushed down the gutters and into the storm drains. O Well Job security I guess, because if you watched the city council meeting city staff are doing a great job. And its not like it just quit snowing and they haven’t had time to sweep the streets yet. Should the cart come before the Horse?????
