Rick’s do-it-yourself approach to tree branch and limb removal, digging out hydrants etc. is starting to wear thin. One must wonder how long it took Mr. Bonnette to drop that shovel once the photo-op was completed.

Along Argyll Road most hydrants are completely or partially buried by hard packed snow. In most cases this is not due to property owner snow removal but by city equipment. Since these hydrants are located on town property, I submit that it is clearly the responsibility of the town to maintain roadside access.

Halton Hills is one of the most heavily taxed municipalities in the country (source: Monesense.ca “Canada’s ten worst places to live”). Is too much to ask for timely snow removal, garbage pick-up and roadside maintenance?

Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 16 Thumb down 7

Residents and businesses urged to dig out the fire hydrants

"Obviously the blurb in the IFP has gotten little attention.

I noticed several hydrants in my area still covered in ice and snow.

In a fire emergency the FD would have a hard time locating a hydrant let alone digging it out.

By the way, lovely picture of the mayor, but where/when was it taken?

There appears to be less than a foot of powder snow on the ground.

The town would be quick to tow a car parked in front of a fire hydrant.

Why is a bank of hard packed ice and snow not a problem?

I’m amazed at the lack of concern from the town and the Fire Department ...
