Recently the Riverside Public Works Department was assisted by a
Scout project to repair dilapidated benches throughout the village. With
the blessing of the Public Works Director resident Ben Cox located and
assessed all of the benches within the village. The data collected was
provided to the GIS (Geographic Information System) staff to plot the
bench locations and incorporate the condition information and photos
taken.

Mapping the benches provides staff an inventory for future reference
and a map product made it simple to identify how many and which benches
would receive maintenance. The village now knows where to target
continued efforts for bench maintenance in the future if desired.
