    Our public art in a junkyard ? wtf, kinda like a museum of malfeasance . we spent over 8,000 for a contractor to store it then it was moved to the junkyard . We could have bought cargo containers to store them in , they would have been in suspended animation
    wonder where the funds for re-installation went .

    @Rat, actually, in the report, if you will notice the line 2 of the change order, it is 16K.

    Council asked staff to bring back a report on this matter, staff submitted a 2 page report. I submitted a 150 page report, it is included in the staff report. I will meet up with Bat-ministration asap and ask he upload the electronic version of this report later today.

    @BE, TY for the kind words. We all pitch in where we can. But when challenged by staff to sit, be still and be quiet, i just cant do it anymore. It is unfortunate one must initiate the media to get results. There are barriers between City Staff and Community, it is unhealthy for Vallejo. I hope and plan for something positive to come from this.

    What a fantastic find,Doug. Brilliant!

    This is the stuff of potential mystery novels, a play or musical.

    If any of these metallic art pieces were found by the metal thieves who ran all over this town and Mare Island during the Great Recession, they are long gone.
    Who, specifically, on City of Vallejo staff is dealing with the search for the missing pieces?
