Rick’s do-it-yourself approach to tree branch and limb removal

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?

I must say that I am very disappointed with the new stand the Town of Halton HILLs has taken to download on the citizens of this town, the task of picking up and disposing of trees and branches on private properties following the disastrous ice storm.Being legally disabled, and my income being less than the minimum wage, there is no way I can hire someone to do that fo me s they suggested. Besides it's a little late as most people have already put their own branches on the city side of the road. Are they simply g oing to ignore them. Then there are the people on Sargent Road that put their broken branches in the median centre which is city property .How long will it take for the other people on that street to do the same. then you have the people whose houses back onto the ravines. If the town doesn't pick up their branches, where do you think they will end up. I would really like to see this issue discussed openly and televised in council. This would really help me in deciding who to vote for. I would really like to know why Mayor Bonnette said this is not an emergency situation. That's easy for him to say since he resides in Acton and they got their power back in one day. BOB DEJARDINS
