Having seen the city crews working night and weekends and having taken photos that have run in the paper of the city crews working on the dike, I think they care about it very much. This is a very unusual year for river run. It is still at high spring stage and has been as high and near overflow as I have ever seen it in my 14 years here. Even though the water is not as near the top as it was been, the heavy flow is still doing damage. Some of the repair work has to be done with lower water levels. It have NOT been low yet this year. The city can not afford an officer constantly patrolling the dike. They are also needed all across town so could use some help like taking plate numbers and calling when you see someone on the dike. If the dike fails these individuals are partially responsible and you might want to know who they are when it comes time to pay for the clean-up. Remember more coverage means higher taxes to pay for it.
