Why? The city's Bureau of Street Services (BOSS) is applying a slurry coat seal that "prolongs the life of the pavement by stopping asphalt erosion caused by water and oxidation from the sun."
Great. Does it also absorb stray bullets? Here's the original City notice, left without fanfare (or postage) in neighborhood mailboxes. And here's the City-to-Newbie translation:
- If you want to pull your car out of your driveway after 6:00am, too bad for you
- If you want to street-park your car within sight of your home, too bad for you
- If you want to sleep past sunrise, too bad for you (garbage trucks come first, at 6:00am)
- If you're disabled and need to be picked up or dropped off at your door, too bad for you
- If you're working on your house or yard and need a vehicle nearby, too bad for you
- If you want to water your yard in the next 3 days, too bad for you (the City says runoff would harm the "integrity" of the slurry)
