I want to thank the County Department of Public Works for picking up that abandoned sofa on E. Mission. It had been an eyesore for weeks, and I had wondered why the residents did not have enough pride in their neighborhood to take the initiative and arrange to have it removed.
It finally occurred to me that instead of grumbling every time I drove past it, I should try to do something about it myself. The County responded within two days of my contacting them, and called me when the job was complete. Well done.
