"Will the Splash Pad be drained directly into PM lake? I thought I read that somewhere. If so are they required to get a discharge permit? And if they are required how long does it take to get a permit? Will the Splash Pad group reimburse the COL for…"

"Shade and leaves from the trees would have interfered with the operation of the splash pad. Shade would limit both the daily and seasonal use of the splash pad since the water isn't being recirculated or treated but instead coming straight from…"

"The DDA has quite a lot of funds ($170,000 more or less) to go through each year in order to revive the downtown, so the wanted renovations is likely enough to bust an annual budget that has renovated parking lots and the plaza area before with less…"

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena0033@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank.
