At its regular monthly meeting last week, Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2F/Logan Circle Commissioner Matt Connelly, 2F-08, reported good news and bad news for Garrison Elementary School (1200 S Street NW). The good news is that money to begin a long-delayed renovation of the school had been found in the DC budget, and the push to find more money is continuing.

The bad news is that sink holes are opening up in the school’s fields. Engineers were hired to study the holes and recommend action.

They completed their study. But the engineers will not release their findings. The reason: DC’s Department of General Services is refusing to pay the engineers.

“Government at its finest,” remarked ANC 2F Chair Matt Raymond, 2F-07.

    Undoubtedly, they’ll waste all the money on some cracked up DC contractor from the LSDBE program!
