We are getting to the point where people must step up to the plate and contribute in order for the paid guards/volunteer effort to continue. There have been many improvements at the tracks. Foliage has been cleared. There have also been some improvements in the security of the site. However, these improvements will not help much if there is no one at the crossing.
Of course, there is no one simple answer to this problem, but if you think that track monitoring should be one part of the solution now is the time to step forward and take action by: donating to the City fund; and volunteering with TrackWatch.
Track monitoring cannot/will not continue at sufficient levels without increased community support.

People aren't contributing because most don't believe that a security guard helps solve the problem. The latest successful suicidal stood at a different location, some 100 ft. from where the security guard was.
The BoE needs to address the academic stress in our schools instead.
