Thanks, Mayor

A reader named Laura e-mailed the Eh? desk recently to share her appreciation for the work Mayor Don Ness did to address a concern she had about parking problems near the library in West Duluth.

In an e-mail to the mayor, Laura said she had trouble safely getting to the library from her parking spot with three rugrats in tow and a handful of books that weighed the same as a kid. She also provided a detailed list of suggestions for improvements.

“My concern wasn’t a huge one and I’m sure Don Ness has more important things he could be doing,” Laura said.

Ness promptly responded to the message and followed through with Laura’s suggestion of repainting existing parking-space lines.

“I think it’s awesome that he uses his position to encourage positive — and cost effective — changes when he can,” she said.
