Run commuter advocacy? That’s right!
An issue arose in Atlanta recently about sidewalk repair and maintenance funding. A local organization, PEDS, has been pushing for a change to Atlanta’s city code that would transfer sidewalk repairs off of the adjacent property owners plate and onto that of the Department of Public Works. They make a good argument, too. However, like many municipalities, Public Works is short on funding to make the much-needed repairs. As a result, there is a panel discussion tonight where the Public Works Commissioner and others will explain the issues and listen to input from the pubic, which will hopefully lead to positive results. It’s short notice (tonight), but if you live in Atlanta and can go, the time and location can be found on PEDS homepage under Action Alerts.
