Poor quality observed at rainbow crosswalks

The anger should not be about whether the crosswalks are painted in rainbow colours. Rather, it should be about the poor quality job.

Dear Editor:

The anger should not be about whether the crosswalks are painted in rainbow colours or just in white.

Rather, it should be about the poor quality job that was done.

I understand we taxpayers were charged almost $4000 for an unacceptable job.

The colours need a white base coat so they are bright and vibrant.

The colour has already worn off to nothing in places and I don’t believe the colours were reflective, which they should also be.

Did they use the proper paint?

These beautiful rainbows add a bit of colour on a drab surface, and the more fun, interesting, colourful, arty things we have in town the better!

I sure hope we have a warranty on those paint jobs. Lets get them done properly!
