Months ago we posted about the crosswalk lines being in horrible condition along Lake Avenue in Wilmette, IL (See How Responsive is your community? – June 2014). A letter had been written to the village of Wilmette in November 2013 bringing attention to the horrible condition of the crosswalks lines on a route to the local elementary school Avoca West. It took 9 months and today we are happy to report that the Village of Wilmette repainted the lines 5 days before the start of the 2014 academic year. Please be sure to contact your local village when you notice areas in need of repair as it does make a different – even if it takes awhile to get completed.
