Community Voices: Coronado City Worker goes beyond call of duty!

Generally, the city has a crew come along to trim the trees on Isabella Avenue especially the Palm Trees but thus far, no luck until yesterday. I called the city about the seeds etc. falling and getting ready to drop a tremendous amount in front of #1028 and #1030 buildings on Monday and was informed my request would be placed on the list.

Yesterday morning, there was one city employee trimming a smaller tree down the block who did not hesitate to walk up to see the looming condition of the situation. Without any hesitation, he stated he would speak to his supervisor at lunch to see if he could return the next day (this morning) to trim the trees. He returned later to place the notice signs and was here bright and early to do the job!!!! Attached photos are but a tribute to Billy with my gratitude for his efforts (as often it takes a crew to do the job)!

Thought it was important to acknowledge good efforts and this reminds me why I consider myself very lucky to live in a place like Coronado!!!
