For decades Valley residents have been complaining about the lack of city services, such as street cleaning. Petitions are circulating in an effort to get enough signatures to study the merits of secession because supposedly residents are fed up with the lack of services.
Well guess what? Just recently new "No Parking for Street Cleaning" signs went up in a number of Valley neighborhoods. Many of us were delighted, after all these years, at the prospect of having clean streets and gutters once in awhile.
