So now it takes at least 2 city paid employees from 2 separate departments to complete the simple task of picking up and moving a bicycle. Brilliant!

Nope, not a hacker JohnMBower Woolrich, I believe the article states the police will still investigate a stolen bike, they just aren't picking them up off the sidewalk or plucking them out of the bushes anymore.

What about high end $$$ mountain bikes that average $1k-$3k???? I certainly would want a real police report. Kinda lumping all bikes in the same catalog seems arbitrary.

MimLogue, what has your post to do with this article? This is about bicycles, STOLEN or lost bicycles. As long as the police still process reports about lost, found or stolen bicycles, why should it matter who picks them up? If the police vehicles are not equipped to haul a bike, the have CS&P pick them up with a truck. They are still paid by the same city who pays the police.

What a joke. Who is going to be responsible of picking up bikes. If that is the most pressing/serious problem facing the city, they are in good shape. one more thing, is picking up stolen bikes(evidence of a crime) beneath these omnipotent officers?-Scott

Maybe you didn't buy a $400.00 bicycle for your child that was stolen. There are a lot of readers who don't live in the flood zone.

House voted to quell flood insurance rates It is paid for largely with a $25 surcharge or residential properties and $250 for non-residential properties or non-primary residences.

Debate on the bill turned emotional at times, with supporters calling it a fiscally responsible way to keep people in their homes, and opponents labeling it a financial giveaway.

"Sending somebody a $10,000, or $20,000-a-year bill on a $200,000 house that never flooded is not an actuarially sound rate, it's a death sentence," Scalise said.

But Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas., said it is irresponsible to continue expensive subsidies to Americans who choose to live in areas with a high risk of flooding. Hensarling is chair of the committee with jurisdiction over flood insurance. But when he wouldn't come up with a remedy to stop sharply higher premiums, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor took the issue away from him. glad the sun has priorities on what is important to a lot of us from this area
