QUESTION — There is no crosswalk in front of the new T.L. Waggoner Elementary School in Imperial. The school has been trying to get one but it's getting the run-around.
Can you look into this and light a fire under the city to paint the crosswalk? The safety of children should be a top priority, not something that can be put off due to red tape. — Fire-setter, Imperial
Even as you read this the painter may be striping the crosswalk in front of the school. As we made our calls earlier in the week, we learned city workmen were cutting down the curbs at both ends of the block to make handicapped-access ramps.
The crosswalks will be painted in the middle of the block in front of the school's Joshua Street entrance any day now, said Barbara Layaye, superintendent of the Imperial Unified School District.
