Rereading this article, I'm not sure what Geoff wants DDOT to do?

1. "There should be an employee who deals with contracts who can get the necessary work done." But Deutsch reports that they have been in contact with the vendor. "Getting the work done" is in their court and the only option if they don't respond to asking/demanding is a lawsuit. Is that what Geoff is asking for.

2."There's simply no rationale for not putting temporary lighting under the bridge." Escept that there is. And that's that resources, as he notes, are limited. Which bike program would Geoff like to fund less to provide temporary lights and maintain them?

And the headline is inexcusable Examiner-type stuff. DDOT in no way told cyclists they were on their own. They said they were aware of the problem and were working on it BUT public pressure might help move things faster. [Unsaid was that this is what moved SOL to perform the last round of repairs]. A far better headline would be "DDOT vendor unable to keep problematic lights working." Or "SOL sucks".
