I wish they would fill pot holes . Priority list should be updated . Will this be a task for our new assistant manager? His salary alone could put a huge dent in the pot hole dilemma.
WHY ARE THEY STILL INSTALLING THEM BACKWARDS???
I ENJOY EATING AT MAIN ST PIZZA AND HAVE SOMEONE SIT THERE ON THE BENCH OUTSIDE AND STARE AT ME!! LOL!! LIKE I WANT TO SIT AT THE BENCHES STARING AT PARKING LOTS OR BUILDINGS . LOL JUST KIDDING PETE P. AKA (SHOVEL SLAYER)
I would like to know why all the benches are backwards. That is, with your back towards the street. Who wants to sit down and stare at the front of a building ?
I'm glad to see them, regardless which way they face. Sometimes as a pedestrian, it's nice to have the opportunity to take a load off.
I thought the same thing Howard. We have this same conversation every year.
But they aren't they going to be an obstacle for the sidewalk snowplows in a few weeks?
I think I'd rather watch the traffic go by (sometimes you see a lot of neat stuff), instead of watching a brick wall. On the other hand, if the brick wall was doing something interesting, I suppose I could watch the wall for awhile.
My liberal response: " How wonderful, now neighbors of all races, ages, genders and sexual preference can sit, relax, meditate and absorb the wonders that make Batavia special.
My conservative response: "Oh great, another place for the takers, not makers, to sleep after smoking marijuana."
Cha cha cha.
I kind of like when they place them sideways and face to face. It makes me interact spontaneously and thankfully the people I talk to mostly ignore me and then the bus comes and the losers leave and I sit there waiting for more prey to walk up. I'm sixty, what the hell do you want from me?
Well, I guess all the benches in Oakfield are backwards then.
Oakfield has benches? When I lived in Oakfield the bums had to sleep on porches. My porch was a favorite. I had an actual bed up in a third floor flop on Pearl Street for sixty dollars a month. Fine memories and great pizza close by.
GOOD THING ITS A SMALL BENCH ,OTHERWISE I MIGHT OF TAKEN 4-5 GUYS TO ASSEMBLE IT !! INSTEAD OF THREE. TAXPAYER DOLLARS HARD AT WORK!!
