Parking lot plantersare waste of money

The Daily Star

---- — Want a chuckle? Take a ride through the Ford Avenue, Dietz Street parking lot. Some body or bodies thought it would be a good idea to put planters in the parking lot, not the kind you have on your porch. These monsters take up two parking spaces.

I hope they plant thorn apples, otherwise our local vandals will have a field day. I’ve seen the havoc done to the Main Street planters.

What a waste of money. Hope it’s not my tax money financing this stupidity. It will be a minor miracle if they avoid the snow plows this winter. And who is going to maintain them in the spring?

There isn’t even any dirt in them yet and some are damaged already.
