Trash/recycling cans line sidewalks violating requirements that a 4' pass is needed between parking signs and building. If the city is really allowing the tenant to use the sidewalk in this manner, they are paying an encumbrance fee, right? Like other businesses that use the sidewalks? I'm assuming an inspector will go by to approve this encumbrance request, and sign off on it, right?

Nice new asphalt and blacktop in front of the UVM Green on South Prospect St between Colchester Avenue and Main Street. (Why are there no rain catch basins at the intersections of: Colchester and Prospect St, and S. Prospect and College Street; nor anywhere along the entire length of South Prospect between Colchester and College Street? The only catch basins are closer to the corner of S Prospect and Main Street. Is the plan to let all of the rain to flow downhill to other catch basins? Won't this cause over flow at those catch basins ?

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
Physical evils are in nature inseparable from animal life, they commenced existence with it, and are its concomitants through life; so that the same nature which gives being to the one, gives birth to the other also; the one is not before or after the other, but they are coexistent together, and contemporaries; and as they began existence in a necessary dependence on each other, so they terminate together in death and dissolution. This is the original order to which animal nature is subjected, as applied to every species of it. The beasts of the field, the fowls of the air, the fishes of the sea, with reptiles, and all manner of beings, which are possessed with animal life; nor is pain, sickness, or mortality any part of God's Punishment for sin. On the other hand sensual happiness is no part of the reward of virtue: to reward moral actions with a glass of wine or a shoulder of mutton, would be as inadequate, as to measure a triangle with sound, for virtue and vice pertain to the mind, and their merits or demerits have their just effects on the conscience, as has been before evinced: but animal gratifications are common to the human race indiscriminately, and also, to the beasts of the field: and physical evils as promiscuously and universally extend to the whole, so "_That there is no knowing good or evil by all that is before us, for all is vanity_." It was not among the number of possibles, that animal life should be exempted from mortality: omnipotence itself could not have made it capable of eternalization [sic] and indissolubility; for the self same nature which constitutes animal life, subjects it to decay and dissolution; so that the one cannot be without the other, any more than there could be a compact number of mountains without vallies [sic], or that I could exist and not exist at the same time, or that God should effect any other contradiction in nature...
