Letter: City Needs to Keep Our Streets and Walkways Clear

Reader writes that Edmonton can't be serious about reducing the snow-removal budget

Re: Who Suffers the Most as a Result of a Shrinking Snow Removal Budget? (June 23)

Really? Cut the snow removal budget? Not clear some areas for three weeks? Where are the people living who come up with these proposals?

We live in a winter city. Clean the snow, all of it, everywhere, all the time. It saves the humans, it saves our roads, which in turn saves on wear and tear to our bikes, wheelchairs and automobiles.

Keep the roads, sidewalks and paths clear and build/rebuild roads that stand up to the freeze/thaw cycles occurring today, not the way it was “in the good old days.”

Come on City of Edmonton, let’s get this right.
