Multitude of problems on Bishop near Barrington. 

So, we’re walking along Bishop near Barrington, and we see half the sidewalk isn’t paved. That sucks. We shrug. Then we notice that some of the signs are in the middle of the sidewalk. That sucks too. We forgive. Finally, we trip on one of two signpost


Remarks: So, we’re walking along Bishop near Barrington, and we see half the sidewalk isn’t paved. That sucks. We shrug. Then we notice that some of the signs are in the middle of the sidewalk. That sucks too. We forgive. Finally, we trip on one of two signpost nubs left sticking out of the ground, and that’s it! Jeebus! You kept pushing us and pushing us! So many problems, such a tiny street—the problem-to-street ratio is ca-razy, yo. We call Bourgeois, who says he’ll check the sign posts, post haste. Sure enough, a crew is out to fix the posts the very same day. Dude, nice turnaround!


Who's Responsible?: Ken Reashor, right-of-way services manager (490-6637), and Andrew Bourgeois with the city’s sign shop (490-6663).
