I am going to have to agree with Mr. Pinter on this one. Mr. Pinter's staff has a lot of maintenance (like irrigation repairs) to do. The Beautification Committee should be laying out plans to bolster its membership by seeking volunteers to assist the city in actually providing manpower to fulfill the beautification committee's recommendations.
For example, if the Beautification Committee wants all cul-de-sacs to meet a certain standard, then may I suggest the committee not only come up with the plan but also the manpower to actualize such a plan.
We can be dreamers, and planners, but we always seem to lack the volunteers and manpower, so by default, we look for the city to get it done. Time now to get all special interest groups to get your hands dirty and play the role of the worker, as well, to complete the circle of commitment.
On this island, we seem to be keen on creating committees, but lack volunteers for getting the actual work done or contributions to pay for such work.
New slogan for the Beautification Committee: Ask not what your city can do for you, ask what you can do for your city.
