City Watch Open Thread 6/29/08

People have been leaving interesting comments this weekend. Sounds like a job for an open thread. If it’s about DeKalb, it’s fair game. To kick off:

When is someone going to actually call the city on their latest screw up? The big set of stairs leading from upper downtown to Palmer Court can’t be done as planned. Since they are using public funds, the stairs or walkway must meet ADA compliance. The problem is that it would have to be a ramp and their [sic] is no way to build it without it being a toboggan run. The only answer now seems to be an elevator. This will become an interesting feature downtown. Who is to blame for this? The engineering department? This is really unbelievable.
