Mulch has been an issue

During the first week of this year’s fall semester, a large pile of mulch was found taking up multiple parking spaces in the southeast lot by the football stadium making it harder for students to find parking.

Multiple students sent in complaints regarding the inconvenience of the mulch and how finding a parking spot was especially difficult during the first week of school.

Amber Chiang, director of marketing and public relations at Bakersfield College, said the mulch pile was moved early on Aug. 28 to the southwest corner of that lot, adjacent to the practice football field on University Avenue.

According to Sally Sterns, BC’s horticulture technician, the mulch will be used inside Memorial Stadium, specifically the area surrounding the “BC” logo on the east side of the stadium.

No date has been given on when the mulch will be transported to the football field.
