Letter: Hoping for roundabout repair



I am so disappointed that the newest roundabout centerpiece at 10th Street and Greenfield Avenue has been totally destroyed. That particular city roundabout was attractive, purposeful and was an appropriate representation of the city’s history.

Please, city officials, find the necessary funds to restore and replicate the structure as originally constructed. I am hopeful that the person responsible for that destruction had adequate insurance to cover this damage.

Finally, I have noticed from my travels throughout the city that many of the roundabouts have sustained damage ranging from streetlight damage, plant destruction, brick and signage damage caused by drivers distracted by speeding, cellphone usage, impaired from other activity or any combination of these behaviors. Therefore, I hope that our police department has issued the appropriate citations in order to provide deterrents for other possible violators.
