Well, I see the city of last century is grasping at straws. I can see right through this one. They get credit (she does) for jobs, get some of their work done free, more cronies are hired (votes) and a band-aid is affixed.

Let's think bigger. Get the RDA, governor, EPA, state, president, whatever it takes. It's been too long and too many mayors. Fix your roads and sewers.

I learned to mow a lawn when I was 10 years old. Look at the mess you got at the Ralston Lagoon. Imagine all the people in this region urinating in Lake Michigan. Need I go further? If not now, when? I remember seeing a postcard of some men in a boat in the early 1900s. They were in Gary's sewer (brick) system, sanitary and storm. They don't need a lawn mower; they need a hundred goats.
