One way to reduce carbon and pollution from internal combustion engines is eliminate unnecessary idling. Are employees who drive UT vehicles given training in this regard? Today I observed a UT truck on White behind strong idling for several minutes. I'm guessing this is not an isolated incident.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Facilities Services employees are instructed to not leave vehicles idling unnecessarily. We have provided a reminder to all of our staff to this effect.
I was wondering if we could get a couple of benches outside our Min H. Kao building on each side of the main entrance on Middle Drive to dress up the outside of our building. Also, maybe a bench just up the street between the two bicycle racks would be nice to have a bench there too. Thanks for all you all do!

Hi, Thanks so much for taking the time to make a suggestion! It's evident that you care about campus, and we appreciate your investment. I'm going to pass along your comment to our Landscape Architecture team (along with your email address) so they can respond.
I almost fell off my bike near the Torchbearer statue - where the Peyton Manning Pass joins the Circle Park Drive because the road was abruptly scrapped off (in order to lay a new road I'm assuming) - There was no signs of warning about this. This might seem trvival to a car - but for bikes and motorcyclees - this is a big deal as we tend to lose balance if the road is not proper - can you please keep a sign over there? Thanks

We're sorry to hear about this! We'll pass your comment along to Parking Services and/or Knox Co Public Works to make sure this is brought to their attention.
When the extension to the pedestrian walkway was being constructed the signage for Temple Hall was removed and hasn't been replaced yet. Will there be a new Temple Hall sign going up for the Herbarium and HITS Lab? It would be especially helpful for visitors coming to both these spaces if there was a sign out front telling them they're at the right building. Thanks for all the work on campus you folks do!

Hi, Installing the signage is in the works. I'm happy to send you a PDF showing the location of the installation if you'd like! - Admin
The outside elevator buttons on the ground floor of McClung Tower do not seem to be working. I have tried to use them a few times over the last week but eventually had to take the stairs after waiting a length of time.
