L'Alpe d'Flag is Gone!

Unbelievable! Someone, I strongly assume it was the city department, has removed the 21 numbers up Flagstaff! I brought my camera with me this morning to take some photos of Flag but found they had been removed...ground off the pavement! Were these numbers offensive? Were they a safety hazard? Aren't we in a recession? If the city has time to spend money on the costly removal of these numbers than why didn't they ever find the money to sweep the shoulder up Flagstaff... that is a safety issue and has been one that has caused discussion on the Daily Camera's opinion section. I know what was done was illegal and I knew someday they would be removed, especially the writing on the road at the very top but so soon? Wasteful!

What's your opinion?
