Dear Town of Lebanon, Maine:

I am writing to call town officials attention to a potential hazard at the transfer station in Lebanon, Maine.

The stairs used to access the recycling bin for plastic/glass/metal containers at the station has no hand railing for people to hold on to as they ascend or descend those stairs.

The absent of such a fixture as part of these stairs could make it difficult for elderly or disabled people to keep their balance as they use them to dispose of their recyclables.

I urge the town to consider the installation of a railing system as part of these stairs to make them safer for everyone who uses them.

Thank you for reading these comments.

Why not try telling the people that work at the station? Im sure someone there would like to do something as all I ever see the workers doing is standing/sitting around.

I think the elderly and disabled would be ok the way it is. It's the fat, lazy, and stupid we have to worry about falling. Everyone else knows their limitations.

Like I said, with all the people Ronnie Patch ripped off he can afford to build a railing all the way to hell which is where he's going to end up
