Thank you for all you do!
I live in westgate which has very tight streets . On Wednesday/Thursday the garbage trucks often block busses.
There are certain bus drivers that skip stops if the trucks are blocking them for a few minutes.
(we won’t go into how the bus companies deal with that..that’s a whole different issue)
Is there any way garbage pickup in westgate or any narrow development can start after 9:15 am to prevent children from not being picked up and bus drivers from getting upset and being able to make their routes in a timely fashion.
A concerned Lakewood resident
Response from Mayor Coles:
I spoke with Public Works & they will do everything possible to adjust the schedule to prevent this.
