Ms. Rivera,
Thank you for your prompt assistance. I called Sunshine State and was told they were only a call center. They did however look up my street and gave me a number for USIC Dispatch. They were apparently the contractor who did the markings. I called them and they said the paint will wear out over time with a couple heavy rainfalls. When I asked how long she could not answer. I informed her we have had numerous heavy rainfalls and the paint has not appeared to fade in the least.
Everything wears out over time, but having bright red spray paint on all of our sidewalks for weeks after work was completed seems excessively long. And there is no telling how much longer we’ll have to accept this. I’m not sure there is another resolution to this other than time, but I thought I’d follow up with you.
Thanks again,
Richard C. Cahill

Mr. Cahill,
I contacted Sunshine State One Call of Florida.  They would be happy to discuss your concerns with you.  Please call 1-800-432-4770  Choose option 4 and then extension 74.  Nat is the person who I spoke with.
Thank you,

Subject: Utility sidewalk marking question
Mr. Kisela,
I live in Willow Run and our (appeared to be several streets) sidewalks and yards were marked by utility company’s a month or two ago. Now that work has been completed our sidewalks are still covered in bright red spray paint that does not seem to fade over time (several weeks now).
We have never had this issue before when our area has been marked. Could you offer any insight as to who could address this? It certainly isn’t helping our property values as our sidewalks look like they have graffiti all over them.
