Take a good look. You're paying for it.

As predicted, the tree grates on Locust Street are beginning to create problems: lifting, weeds, debris.
They were a pet project of a former councilman, who was warned of potential issues but pushed on with the project anyway. In August 2016, council voted 4-3 to purchase the grates at a cost of $2,500. Many of the grates are now being removed.
