Did snow crews forget Glen?
Dear editor,
While I fully realize that the snow removal services were stretched to the limit on Friday, it seems that the residents of Glen Williams were once again the forgotten taxpayers when it came to the plowing of the streets.
Side streets in the Glen had not been plowed as of 6 a.m on Saturday, so I decided to determine for myself the level of service that everyone else in the north part of Georgetown had received. No side streets in the Glen, be it on the west or east side of the Credit River, nor the streets in the Oak Ridge part of the Glen had been plowed. With the one exception of Anderson Court, everything else i.e. every side street in the north part of the community, had been plowed.
Every area that I checked— Moore Park, Trafalgar Country Estates, the side streets off Ontario Street had all seen the plow at least once. What was particulary galling was that it was evident that some had had a second visit as well. I can accept the necessity for roads near the hospital to be given high priority, but when streets such as Mowat Crescent (no offence to the residents of said street, I should add) were plowed twice, it is annoying. The west side of Glen Williams finally saw the plough around 7:30 a.m., but the east side had to wait a further 90 minutes. This is not good enough.
One final comment, the `Battered Stop Sign Syndrome’ has returned. Once again, the stop sign at the top of Forster Street was assaulted by the plow (it happens at least once every year, or so it seems), but at least a temporary one was in place in short order.
