“Vigilante sidewalk repair”

“Dear PoPville,

Tuesday at the bus stop at H & 6th NW.

FBI, GAO, and “wet floor” cones.

Wednesday:

Working in the street with a single cone for protection from traffic.

A police officer came and explained that it’s city property, not safe, etc. and he left/was removed.

Thursday (today):

He’s back with even more equipment!

It’s a random guy who decided the sidewalk here wasn’t safe. He’s fixing it with pavers that don’t match the existing brick. I’m not sure where they came from.”
