Some people think Claremont only sells expensive frou-frou items. But according to City Manager Jeff Parker’s weekly report (kindly forwarded by reader Phil Carty), City Hall is now pushing a consumer product at a rock-bottom price.
“The City has FREE rocks that have been collected from the Padua Avenue Park project site during the grading process,” Parker writes, “and Claremont residents are invited to pick up the reclaimed rock.”
Claremont residents only, eh? Ha ha, you Uplanders will have to look elsewhere for your free rock.
As if the benefits of free rocks weren’t obvious, Parker puts an environmental spin on the deal:
“These materials will not only make an attractive addition to your garden or landscape, but also reduce waste while promoting increased sustainability and utilization of local resources.”
Now how much would you pay? Unless you’re anti-sustainability, visit the lot in the 4100 block of Padua Avenue.
