I got a great idea...get some of these bums in town that are on welfare...or food stamps or some form of public assistance to get off their lazy******and do something for their handouts. Love the ones that can smoke 3 packs of cigs a day but can't work?

Waiting for the city workers to do anything is like waiting for paint to dry when there's 100% humidity. BUT, this is a trickle down effect. The workers in the maintenance department don't make the decision of where they will work, and none of them are afraid of hard work in my experience. Even Mr. Kunz cannot make the decision, although he is perfectly capable of doing so. This department falls under the Safety Service Director, Mr. Hupp. He is a micro-manager who does not allow long time employees who know their jobs, to make even the smallest of decisions.

Our courts allow people who are given sentences that include community service hours to work with the Marietta's parks department. There are many, many people who would welcome the chance to do this but the city seems to resist this. Oak Grove Cemetery could have been cleaned up immediately after the storm, if the city would have contacted the probation departments to request those people.

Failure to communicate!
