Waste of money

City workers baby-sit huge hole in the ground |
For the past year, at least two Atlanta city workers have sat in a parked truck 24 hours a day, seven days a week in a lot on a hill overlooking the Midtown Place shopping center.

At a cost of untold thousands of public dollars, they sat, watched DVDs and ate fried chicken as they baby-sat a hole in the ground for which no one wants to take responsibility.

City workers have been sitting by the hole around the clock in case a big pump has to be turned on. Officials say they are unable to estimate how much the watch operation has cost.
