Why not just stop offering the plaques? I think it's insulting to people who pay for a memorial to set a 10 year limit on their tribute to a family member. If City staff doesn't like the idea of a "memorial park", leave the existing plaques as they are and don't offer more. Seems fairly simple.


The "fix" is indeed insulting but would seemingly maximize revenues ... hmmmm.

Just do a wall in each park of trees planted in memory of or creat a memorial park here trees and plques can be left.

Just another non-issue to waste time on, up there with grafiti and back-yard chickens and heritage districts etc. etc. etc. Note to council: get off your asses and try to get some real work done. For this they got a raise?

Definitely imagine that which you stated. Your favoueite justification appeared to be onn the net the asiest thing to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed even as folks coinsider issues that they jut ddo not understand about. Youu controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will likely bbe again too geet more. Thanks

My wife and I plan to both retire at the same time and almost certainly to our favorite place. One line of business that is currently thriving under our noses is the security trade. s coverage of the issue over the last week, illustrating the fact that they are a legitimate expression of how many Obama voters plan to respond if Romney comes out on top.
