It’s pretty clear #btv that @MiroBTV and #btvcc plan to help renters/workers is to wait for @POTUS. We can’t wait for a failed plan that will only cover 20% of renters at most. If you are facing eviction or can’t pay rent please contact us #vtpoli

Dave's Corner 💭
As some of you know, I co-host a monthly podcast about business books. Last night we released a different kind of episode about the coronavirus. We're not medical professionals. This episode is just the perspectives of a few fairly well-informed citizens. I hope you enjoy it and find it informative. I will warn you that my co-host Molson does not shy away from being pretty controversial. The editing on the episode is a little rough, because we wanted to get it out while it was still relevant.
We all owe a big thank you to the doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals who are out there on the front lines.

A huge tree fell; repair work was done by BED and Cable Companies. However there are remaining wires hanging across and about 3ft above the sidewalk at both ends of the damages. These cables are accidents waiting to happen. Pylons would work until the work can be done and should be placed before dark as they would not be visible in the dark.
Thank you for your work.

large pothole at on east side of Pine St. at the corner of Pine St and Home Ave. You probably know about it, but now even the buses have to go around it into the oncoming lane to go around this pothole. Could use some warning cones or signage to help control traffic.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
The mystery is that the world is at it is -- a mystery that is the source of all joy and all sorrow, of all hope and fear, and the source of development both creative and degenerative. The contingency of all into which time enters is the source of pathos, comedy, and tragedy.
