So all theae benches were endowed by neighbors about 15 years ago. The repairs will probably be made from the Comm Ave Mall committee, i.e. private funds.

support the Mall and maintenance and improvements.

The Parks Dept. is underfunded. Come to the next City Council hearing on the Parks Dept. budget and ask for more money (or submit comments). The City should be adequately supporting its parks and not rely on private donations. It is frustrating.

My point was that it was a city and not a DCR property.

While standing?

I did this once and two of the slats broke loose - rotted at the ends (water got in around where they are fastened).
