Thank you for your recent e-mail. I must tell you that you are indeed correct, the sign was requested by the Local School Council for the safety of the students. I would imagine that you can understand my position in putting the sign up for safety purposes. Furthermore, I don't believe my action could be deemed as "indulging the wishes of the school". The safety of the children is the primary reason for the installation of the sign.
Thank you for your input, but I have no intentions to remove the sign.
Please accept my best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season.
Alderman Bernard L. Stone
