  1. I’ve been going down the mirabella pool for 30+ years. As long as I can remember people, both north Enders and yuppies, have been locking their chairs on the fence. I never saw one person, child, or dog get hurt. It seems like people will complain about anything.

  2. The sprinkler area is overwhelmed by storage of chairs. You can’t mow or clean around them. They make the area unappealing. I’m sure a kid fell.

  3. How difficult is it to carry a beach chair home at the end of a day at the pool? Nowhere else do people expect to leave their personal property in a public space. Cut the chairs off the fence and throw them out. Lazy people will get the message.
