Be Careful Shoveling, Snow Wet And Heavy

Postby Jim O'Bryan » Thu Feb 13, 2020 8:24 am

During this brief but beautiful snow storm, it is far better to take your time shoveling, and or keep up on it while it is light.

The snow is a slushy mess at the bottom, so it is far heavier than it looks. Clean a pathway, the nibble away at it.

In the end, we would rather have you than clean sidewalks, but those with handicaps, walkers, pedestrians, people with pets will appreciate it!

So is this a good time to raise the question about municipal sidewalk clearing again?

Dan

You can bring it up anytime you want.

How are you going to pay for it?

Mike Summers said there was over $12 million surplus in the bank on December 13, 2019.

How much do you want to bet that was all bull too.

Rumors are by the end of 2020 that will be nothing as it was all accounted for before he left office. Remember a couple posts about Summers locking everything up? Or Summers is spending money like a drunken sailor?

Mayor George should call for a complete audit right now.

Are you saying saying that the audit sitll hasn't been called for? Isn't that good government 101?

I'm sure this has been brought up before but how about a system that incents neighbors with good snow blowers to do more of their streets?
