    How is this information getting to the people that need it? Some residents do not have a computer, or if they do have access, don’t go on twitter or facebook.

    An email received to someone who asked this question to the Mayor’s office received an answer to indicate that they were looking into how to accomplish this. Haven’t heard back as to what actions actually took place.

    Think its time to prioritize needs .Rainbow sidewalks and benches should not be more important than getting out information to those residents who need to access a cooling station.
