What's wrong? Never-moving scaffolding on the west side of City Hall.
Who's responsible? Phil Townsend, assistant director, infrastructure & asset management, 490-4000.
Remarks: This is part on-going renovations to City Hall. Engineers felt some of the stone work might drop on passing pedestrians, so they erected the scaffolding. The plan was to replace the stone last year, but the project manager for the work left city employment and, this being complicated stuff, it took a while to hire someone else with the expertise. Townsend says work on this side of the building will start up again in the summer. Renovating the entire building will take four years.
