Bee Heard

.The Amherst Police union contract expires Dec. 31, 2017. Serious give backs are required with downsizing of the overstaffed department in order.

.Regarding the water fountain and restrooms at Bassett Park, for the past three summers, the smaller fountain has been leaking water; it’s a continuous leak and a waste of water. There has to be someone in the town who can shut that fountain off. When there is such a shortage of water in California, it’s a shame to waste water like that for three consecutive summers. Please, someone, shut that fountain off and stop wasting water.

. We need the Amherst Police at Dan Troy and Sheridan as several illegal left turns out of the post office are constantly being made and have caused several accidents. You have a left turn lane onto Dan Troy and the left turn lane into Wegmans that create a very busy area that is further exacerbated with the illegal left turns coming out of the post office.

.With the abundance of garage sales, some homes having two or more a year, isn’t it time that a permit be required to monitor these sales?
