"We appreciate (their) passion to be part of the solution when it comes to road repairs, but there are certain protocols which include getting a permit to work in the city’s right of way. This ensures that the city knows what work is being performed on city-owned assets, who is doing the work and what materials are being used,” she said. "Safety is the greatest concern on this matter. Working in open traffic requires training and attention to safety standards.”
Warren and Lang said they have spent about $1,000 on tools and material. The money has come from their own paychecks, donations and a GoFundMe account they set up.
"Until then we keep it up," Lang told WISH. "As long as we've got funding and time."
