| About Dem' Curbs - HOH |
Following up on a previous blog about the frequent curbs encountered on a recent run in Hastings. When we posted our blog to the 10706 page we received a few comments and suggestions - which were taken seriously and followed through on. The comments basically eluded to emailing the HOH board a Notice of Defect - to which we titled our email.
I hope this email brings awareness and solutions.

Well - residents of good ol' Hastings on Hudson - make sure this group of people follows through.
- Write them emails sharing my blog posts, whether its this one or #11, or new ones.
- When you see them working on your roads, shoot them an email saying make sure you fix that curb there!
- Send them pictures of other issues in town that need addressing.
- And... be nice! Momma always said - Kill 'em with kindness! There's enough negativity and hostility in the world, we don't need to be gettin' nasty over some curbs.
Why do we have to remind them? - Because they are human and likely volunteer for these positions. They are not omnipresent and your reminders, which are hopefully gentle reminders, are in fact helpful. Sure - they've likely been pointed out the issues, but have you ever gone to the grocery store needing 5 items and after you pick up 4 of the 5 you can not remember what that last, 5th item was... Being in the arena of volunteering for the greater interest of the public requires a lot of remembering - I forget all the time!
