    Hello City of Decatur:
    Public-right-of-way hazard is at, roughly, 2177 Ponce de Leon Ave., which is in the City limits, given recent annexation.
    The map would not allow placement at the correct address.
    --------------------------------------

    A large stump has been abandoned on the sidewalk in front of 2177(?) Ponce de Leon Ave. for many months.

    I had noticed it in the past but was reminded of it yesterday when I crashed my bicycle into it.
    (I was thrown into the oncoming roadway lane and was spared death by a lack of motor traffic.)

    Bicycling this stretch of sidewalk is normal use, as bicycling down the state highway there is . . . less than ideal.
    That is, city residents bicycling to and from work and school in the Clifton Corridor use this sidewalk regularly.

    So, the stump needs to be removed for safety of the public right of way.

    Thank you for your time.

    Underpass bike lanes *remain* littered with tree litter and general motorist waste, like pieces of wood and cardboard boxes.

    Is there someone in the City of Decatur who is actually responsible for this?
    It was first reported after the hurricane last *October*.

    I suppose I will email my City commissioner . . . shouldn't really have to . . .

    Both bike lanes on E. Lake Rd. under the bridge are littered with piles of pine straw and heap-up leaves. There is also a foot-long board near the southbound bike lane. A street sweeper seems to be needed. Thank you.

    This is probably known already, but the *third* contractor-truck produced damage to the new concrete appeared this week. Also, I know the culprits: This time it was an AT&T crew who had all but two feet of the PATH blocked a couple days ago. I certainly hope our taxes are not used to cover all this redundant paving.

    The corner of W. Parkwood and Ponce has new-ish pavement problems. This is a pretty common bike-commuter route. Thos makes the whole section of lower W. Parkwood an especial danger, and the southwest curb area most treacherous.
    It is unclear, to be a bit critical, why the other, much better, lower section of Parkwood was paved recently. This sure helped the autos speed on through.
