Councilman Paul Toller suggested moving them to the park's north parking lot so they are less of an eyesore and less visible to visitors from other cities. Mayor Carl M. Johnson said the bins are a big service to the public.- Mayor Carl M. Johnson suggested using the city office's marque to publicize the return of local military personnel as much as possible.
