  1. Seems those flower pots have caused more accidents than they’re worth. Get rid of them all.

    1. Those hideous flower beds need to be removed! Could have been a different outcome.

  2. They called it beautification. There is nothing downtown to go to any more thanks to WALMART and other big business. Definitely could have been a different outcome more than likely. This was my daughter. If it were a BIG SHOTS family, I bet they would be removed.

  3. The flowerpots make delivery trucks swingout farther to aviod them, or force the to button hook to keep from curving their tires. This is a safety issue which should have been discussed before wasting tax payer money. Safety first!!!

  4. Just about anybody with common sense could tell those flower beds were going to cause trouble for drivers. Bigger vehicles have trouble swinging wide enough to get through their turns. They never should have been installed as they are dangerous.
