Please click on images to ENLARGE 10 a.m. Thursday, August 20, 20009,l view of muddy water running from the new trail site carrying silt from red dirt and tan "topsoil" spread in past couple of days on the edges of the trail through Pinnacle Prairie. An intense but short-lived thunderstorm had passed over the area at about 9 a.m.

Does an ordinance or policy or some manual used by the staff require spreading that stuff where ever work is done?
Soil is different in many different geographical areas off the city and dumping something else there doesn't mean an improvement.
And, if it washes away, that is money down the stormdrain!
The mayor shouldn't have to explain this to the staff. Top staff members should be able to recognize this and change the policy or the manual or recommend an ordinance change to minimize such foolishness.

Please, Anon 1:42, suggest such at trees and landscape committee or whichever of the move Fayetteville forward AND other such city committee meetings that would have some interest/influence that you are able to attend.
Make a phone call or two. I guess twittering may now be possible.
It takes a village.
The newspapers allow 1 letter a month from any one person, but city hall takes calls every day.
The questions you ask are worthwhile to share with our elected and appointed city officials/committees.
Please do so!
