Maybe the city could train indigents to issue parking citations or hire them to clean up after the bears that ravage the City-owned dumpsters and spread garbage over the hillside behind The Creek. And incorporate a bench in that new bronze sculpture.
I see that workers are re-installing the benches at the Library bus shelter today. I wonder if they could add security cameras. Not for the daytime "patrons" but for the ongoing theft that occurs in that parking lot at night. Surely it could come out of the $300/year the city charges for Downtown/Creek Street residents for a permit to park near their abodes.
As for the odious hobos and bums, doesn't the City already have a massive social service agency (not to mention all the publicly funded non-profits that infest the area) whose goal it is to fight for "social justice"?
