Sound Off

Sound Off: Last year the fire hydrant in my yard was replaced. In the process, a huge hole was dug out around the hydrant then filled in. Over time the ground has settled and there remains a large sunken depression around the hydrant with wide cracks. I’m afraid someone may twist an ankle or lose a pet in one of the cracks. Whom do I call to request more dirt for this spot?

Contact the city’s utilities department, 832-7800.

Maybe money is the issue since dirt costs.

I think they should make the "sound off" questions' font size just a little bigger. Looks to be about 21pt. I say that's too little. What about... 48? No. 64! Yes, they should use 64pt font.

At least 128 pt. Go big or go home. I want to have to scroll down to read each word.

I agree with "forealzies". Do it yourself.

At least we will get all the sinkhole questions resolved so we can move on to what we had for dinner last Tuesday.
