Calls for work on bushes at 13th and Harding in Tama

June 29, 2019
Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

Letter to Editor:

After two years of repeated requests to the city of Tama (city council, mayor, clerks office, city police, city maintenance) to eliminate the problem of obstruction of vision at one of the busiest intersections in town, the three-way stop at the north end of Harding St. where 13th and the busy north turn of 63 all meet, with no results other than finally a very temporary trimming of bushes there last summer, we are now back to the same old problem.

Anyone in a sedan car traveling north on Harding and approaching that stop sign has vision dangerously impaired regarding traffic from the east. Why bushes were ever allowed to be planted there at the stop sign and fire hydrant initially, boggles my mind, much less why they have been allowed to remain.

I will gladly offer, for free, to go trim those down and then spray with Roundup so they don't ever return if given permission to do so. Otherwise, anyone who has an accident at that corner will certainly have every legitimate right to sue the city for repeatedly choosing to ignore this critical safety issue.
