It is a regular occurrence to have to go through the process multiple times before the machines will actually read the card. I was one of several people today who are going to miss connecting with our groups, in Seattle, because of this issue. Either the machines need to be fixed or replaced, or there at least needs to be a call button to the ferry, from the meters to alert them to hold the ferry when the meters are not working.
301 Shannon Drive Bainbridge Island, WashingtonSunday morning I reported graffiti that was spray-painted on Bainbridge Island Rowing's boat yard wall Saturday night/Sunday morning. The officer I spoke with said this was the fourth such instance. One of our junior rowers could read it: "Tag is Carne. La(something)"
4450 Blakely Ave Ne Bainbridge Island, WA 98110, USA
Multiple power lines down. Called Puget Sound Energy 2x. First time was a week ago, I described the problem and gave the address and cross street (Mabrey Lane). I called PSE again as I see more lines are down and wires are uncoiling further, including one line on the ground and others a few feet from ground.
Puget Sound Energy had no solution other than to send someone out. They had no record of my first report. I was speaking to the SAME representative!
They said IF they investigate and find the lines to be owned by anyone other than PSE, they don't do anything. I asked for clarification: nothing? They repeated, they cannot do anything.
So, I am to understand that there are power lines owned by X Company on Bainbridge Island and if you report to PSE, they have NO protocol for informing the correct agency? This is unacceptable, unaccountable and negligent.
These lines are one foot from a bike lane and 50 yards from an elementary school. Surely someone is accountable to keeping our community and wildlife safe from downed power lines?
Closest address is 4874 Blakely Avenue. The SCF app refuses to acknowledge my editing the geolocation, it keeps defaulting to my phone's current location. Cross street is Mabrey Lane.

Sportsmans Club Road Bainbridge Island, WA
Location: Sportsman's Club road, opposite Woodward and Sakai schools and adjacent Northtown Woods, Bainbridge Self Storage, and the Cooper Top commercial area.
I'm concerned about the continued escalating public use of the buffer/utility easement on the east side of Sportsman's club road between New Brooklyn road and the electrical sub-station.
Since the project to bury the electrical utilities along this roadway the buffer has come under increasing use.
It is more and more frequently used as annex parking for school events and a parking area for day to day pick ups and drop offs. It is also being used more and more frequently as parking for community for profit and nonprofit activities.
Additionally the storage business uses it as staging area for cargo transfer between tractor trailers and moving vans, and often to park their logo laden vehicles as advertisement.
Most recently the company constructing the addition to the Copper Top development is (actively) staging construction materials and debris among the buffering trees and shrubs. This week adding piles of gravel along the roadway, to be used (presumably) as either staging for the job, or to spread to build the roadside and buffer into even more of a parking area.
Please look into the situation along this stretch of road and address any improper use of buffer, inappropriate uses of utility easements, and illegal development of parking areas.
100 Ravine Lane Ne Suite 210, Bainbridge Island, Washington
Topic: Illegal Removal of Vegetation Buffer bordering Hwy 305 at Intersection of Winslow Way
Over the 18 months there has been a removal of the vegetation buffer on what I assume is public land bordering on Hwy 305 in order to display the Avalara sign on the corner property. The slow and steady encroachment over that time makes obvious that they were aware of their violation of the city statute.
It is my understanding that the City of Bainbridge has vegetation screen requirements for this type of area.

City Hall Town Square Bainbridge Island, WashingtonOnce again, the red light is on on the Big Belly in Town Square. It happened at the end of the farmers' market. It has happened with this Big Belly a couple other times this summer. Is the Big Belly not being emptied during the "Caution, it's getting full" phase (if such a phase exists)? I know Bainbridge Disposal is emptying the Big Bellies on Winslow Way every day during the summer. Are they responsible for this one, too, or is it a public works job?
