Editor, The Times:
I am disappointed with the road maintenance in this town. There is a huge number of seniors in this town and the road maintenance contractor does not have the interest of seniors in mind.
This winter we struggled to keep our driveway shoveled, but then the plow comes along and piles a two to three foot snow bank in the driveway and no way of getting out unless you shovel that frozen bank away.
Would it not make sense to lift the plow past the driveway or plow it in the middle of the road and haul it away? The snow plowing also broke two of our lawn sprinklers at $20-plus each. I complained to the town and was told to contact the contractor, which I did. I left a message and received no return call. Now it is street sweeping time and still no courtesy; the rocks don’t end up in the bucket, they fly six feet onto the driveway and in the lawn to damage the lawnmower blade.
For the high taxes a person pays there has got to be a contractor with more consideration.
