Letters: Council hits new low

In regards to the new policy on snow removal and the clearing of snow on sidewalks, I think city council has hit a new low.

In regards to mayor Walt Cobb and city council’s new policy on snow removal and the clearing of snow on sidewalks, I think city council has hit a new low.

To threaten citizens with fines for not clearing sidewalks which their tax dollars are supposed to look after is nothing short of public bullying, the same way you have tried to push the burning of railway ties upon the people.

More bullying.

If downtown businesses do not want their sidewalk sanded don’t sand them. They are asking with good reason.

If we don’t have enough money to look after our sidewalks, etc., then we should look to see where our money is being spent (new swimming pool, property exemption for private business, etc.).

Maybe these things could be put aside until there are better times and extra cash.

Maybe it is time to let the citizens know how far in debt this city really is and where the borrowed money was spent.

Our tax dollars are supposed to benefit all citizens, not just a chosen few.
