Saga continues with city trash

The sun is out and we have a break in the wonderful rain here in Solano County.

So, because of the break in the weather, I continue to walk my two dogs throughout the area. I just branched out and walked the Linear Park walkway all the way to Oliver Road and back. My walk resulted in the discovery of completely trashed-out area going under the Interstate 80 overpass.

Do people realize there is a walkway one can take from West Texas Street to Oliver Road? Am I being too presumptuous to expect the city to clean out this area of debris and trash? It looks like a campground for the homeless, minus the homeless. The city might want to take a peek at this area.

But, on a brighter side, I see the city police are on the job driving their patrol cars down the Linear Park. I want to thank one of the officers who stopped to talk about a BB handgun dude who was enjoying target practice alongside the park area. Just saying, priorities, priorities.

    Pat, it IS a campground for the homeless. I would NEVER walk there. You must go while they are reloading their beer, ciggies and drugs. I remember the articles in the DR about how the homeless say they need more help and so on. Photo was of a guy with a beer in one hand and cig in the other. Our tax dollars at work. Police need to clean the entire Linear Park. It is UNSAFE
