PRINCE GEORGE CUPE is still wondering what management elf removed signs urging people to call city hall to complain about poor lighting, sidewalks and streets.

“It wasn’t outside workers,” said Local 399 president Kevin McConnachie. “But one thing is certain, many of the signs will be back up starting tomorrow, right on people’s lawns.”

About 70 residents have requested signs for their front lawns, McConnachie said. “And I think there will be considerably more.”

The signs are part of a campaign aimed at letting city council know that CUPE members are hearing complaints from citizens about the poor state of roads, sidewalks and streetlights.

“A few months back dandelion-strewn boulevards were upsetting people, McConnachie said. As we move into the fall, those street lights will become an important item needing repair.”

The local is conducting research on various projects. Next week they will start a new information campaign to keep the public informed and urge residents to call city hall with their concerns.
