The Ole Bureaucratic Bolero

Metro is misdirecting Salemtown residents who may be affected by the Schoene Ansicht stormwater run-off system, which empties into the alley between 5th and 6th Avenues at Hume Street. This morning I spoke with a neighbor on the adjoining property who told me that she contacted the Metro Sewer Department. Metro Stormwater Engineer Steve Mishu had left her with the impression that they were her next stop after he washed his hands of the problem. Metro Sewer officials told her that they rarely act on problems like this without first getting a recommendation from a stormwater engineer (you know, like Steve Mishu).

Do you get the feeling that bureaucrats just bounce you back and forth in order to tire you and drive you away?
