Ok, so the city is listening to our complaints regarding all the vehicular (truck, parking enforcement vehicle) traffic on the boardwalk. I just heard from City Manager Jack Schnirman and he had this to say: “I agree completely, and have been working hard to change the culture where vehicles, particularly in the off summer season, were on boardwalk. Nevertheless, I have reiterated the no vehicles directive.” This is all similar to what John from Screwtheboardwalk reported a few weeks back (read – Screwin’ Ain’t Easy – An update and solicition for opinions on Screw the Boardwalk.)
What about that parking enforcement vehicle that I spotted the other day? Jack said he had the police commissioner pull the records from Sunday night to see about the parking enforcement issue. He believes it was one of the specials using a vehicle to respond to a call.
I’ve met Jack several times and I believe him when he says he’s working on it; the guy really wants to save this city some money. Less boardwalk repair is one way we can save cash, but we have to keep pushing this topic. It’s going to take a culture change as well. Some long time city workers just love taking the scenic route… Please keep sending me your photos. I have five total so far, but we need more! If you want to remain anonymous, upload them with our public seabythecity.com anonymity photo dump or just email me directly. I won’t share your email or name (and I think I’m a nice guy to chat with.)
