There are two “marked crosswalks” on Huntington Drive (between Starbucks and San Marino Security), and neither has worked, and thus created a dangerous condition for the residents.
The “marked crosswalks” are supposed to beacon for vehicular traffic, i.e., the lights installed on the ground are supposed to flash when a pedestrian pushes call buttons.
I called Robert Belmont of the city’s Public Works department, but his mailboxes are too full to take another message. His supervisor, Christopher Gutierrez, has been out. I contacted the city’s police department twice, which said they would let the Public Works know of the problem. Where is our tax money being spent?
