A woman called this week about the decorative lights along the streets of downtown Corner Brook.
“They add to the city but it’s time to replace some of the blown-out bulbs. Surely, someone at city hall could find the time to check them out,” she said, “even some of the globes are tilted.”
“As I say, the lights add to the city but it’s not much good to put them there and forget them.”
Another woman called about city hall officials who took a Cormack farmer to court for selling his produce in the city without a permit.
“He knew what his customers wanted and it was local and reasonable. What are they doing?” she asked.
“How do I get this stuff if I don’t have a car. It’s awful,” she said.
An emailer sent a note about the number of vehicles he has witnessed going the wrong way down Park Street in Corner Brook — one of the most used one-way streets in the city.
“Something has to be done about the traffic situation at the three-way intersection at Park, Central and West Valley Road before someone gets hurt or killed.
“There obviously has to be better signage directing people where to go.
“I’ve lost count of the number of cars going the wrong way over the last couple of months. It’s like this every year — but this year it seems far worse — probably because of the construction at the intersection,” he said.
A woman called to say how upset she was that management at the Pepsi Centre was considering charging walkers to use the facility.
“I’m a senior and a taxpayer and I’m discouraged. What in the world is going on with city council and the provincial government?
“They’re all out to hit hardworking families,” she said.
