Where did our tax payers money go for this winter?
Is the city slacking off on snow removal?Or are they seeking snow plow drivers?
Let's talk about the city snow plows,
I live in northern part of town in LaPorte.Today's the 27th.It's 12:30 PM still haven't seen a snow plow come down my road yet.The city know's there is more snow coming tonite.The city plows hasn't plowed my road yet.
Let's talk about the city plows pushing the snow back to prepair for more snow coming.
That isn't happening !
I have snow piles 4 1/2 feet from the curb line in front of my home.These snow plow drivers isn't pushing the snow back for more snow coming.Or they need to be trained on how to plow snow.I've plowed snow for INDOT & Toll Road in the past yrs to know how to plow snow.
These snow plow drivers hasn't been trained to operate a snow plow from what I see.
I see snow plow drivers operating their under bodies and front plow at the same time leaving piles of snow in intersections.What these snow plow operators don't understand is.Under bodies are used for ice.Front plows are used to push snow.These drivers need trained! A waste of our tax dollars from untrained operators.Not only that!,Not once this yr did I see any city employee shoveling out the fire Hydrants.It's strange that if you drive near the court house the street snow is all cleaned up.I never see a snow plow out at nite plowing our roads.
Seems they only work till 5 pm.

The flower planters in down town LaPorte was the biggest mistake La Porte ever made.A mistake and a big waste of our tax payers money!
These planers caused shorting of intersections for driver turning radiaus.As well as,off street turning lanes at stop lights to Linclonway.
Last yr over 40 % of these planters wasn't used.My opinion these planters should all be removed.Doing this will wide the intersections and off street intersections as well as giving more parking space for parking down town & off street parking.

How to bring business to down town LaPorte?"Linclonway" .
Lower the asking price for rent of the building space rentals.Take a drive down Lincolnway and notice all the old building along down town.
From the down town Music Shop to LaPorte Savings bank who owns mostly all of these buildings?"Kabelin's " That's owe.The owner's of ACE Hardware once known as TrueValue.Their asking rental price for any of these spaces down town is uncalled for .For any small business seekers.
