City Council to Discuss Options for Clinton Street Light Poles | WWNY TV 7 -

   The Mayor is correct in trying to rectify the poor job done on Clinton Street reconstruction. The lights in the 100 block are strung together with overhead wires that look haphazard and out of place, like they are wired with extension cords. Placement of the poles is also an issue.

    While you can't unring a bell, you can fix this mistake.

Why is the mayor correct in addressing this? If you made a list of city problems and prioritized them intelligently, I doubt this would be in the top 100. The sidewalks are already 100% in compliance with ADA. But if that was the real concern, there are plenty of sidewalks in the city that are not.

The better problem to solve is who screwed up this project so bad and why. Hold them accountable. Make an example out of them. Send a message to contractors and employees that the city will not allow inferior work to go unpunished. Take National Grid to court. Let them know that the city will not allow them to get away with neglecting their obligations to perform work in a timely fashion. Keep in mind that you don't always have to win in a fight, you just have to get some respect from your opponent. It will pay in the next interaction.

Too bad fountainless joe isn't as interested in fixing the water-fountain as much as he is these stupid light posts. Oh wait, that's the banking district...

I don't get it and agree fully with 8:41 AM
Why is that so important?
Because the Mayor lives in the area? Or some people in his Bank job complaint? Or someone who has influence with the Mayor or the CC lives there?
There are a lot of streets and sidewalks who need to be fixed in this city. For example on the North Side. Just drive along East Main street. People have to walk on the street. The only side walk is not usable.

How about including Breen Ave? This is a street with the same problems. Poles in the sidewalk. Why wasn't that a concern? Why is it always certain parts of the city get certain things, while others get nothing or the turned eye. Where is the fairness of taxpayers and how others get treated?
It is the same but have lived with it for years.. Fix them both if your fixing one.
