Since getting our puppy, I have been walking along the paths on Clipper Drive from Cove to Newport usually twice a day and have had the opportunity to observe the maintenance – or lack thereof – along this route.
Back in December before Christmas, I talked to a couple of people who were trimming plants regarding the failure of the sprinkler system in one place where the pipe is broken and is flooding the walk and surrounding landscape to the point where it is extremely dangerous to pass. I even talked with one of the town managers about this issue a couple of weeks ago. Still nothing has been done.
While walking the day before yesterday, I noticed that the sprinklers were running again and water was blowing out everywhere. I couldn’t even get to Cove, as the sprinklers in the lawn on the corner were shooting up like a beautiful fountain. Still nothing has been done.
At various stages along the path there are pet waste containers and convenience bags for people to use; however, two of the three along Clipper are overflowing and empty of bags, yet the sign says “please pick up after your pet.” Needless to say, there is pet waste everywhere.
Whoever is in charge of this area of Discovery Bay should be fired due to the lack of proper maintenance.
