  1. Does anyone have more specific info on the items that will be serviced at this time? The private firms or City Departments engaged in the repairs? The time referenced is temporary, however is there a more explicit timetable? What expense has been budgeted and where will the funds come from? More questions, certainly. Time will tell.
