Wasting taxpayers money

Milton, MA

#1 Jan 9, 2008
Why does the town clear the sidewalks on West Main Street from the center of town to the middle school. I live on this road and not one child walks to school and needs the sidewalk. Not only that, they plow the sidewalk when we have an inch or two of snow and will melt the next day? The other day the plowed the sidewalk with two inches of snow on a SATURDAY EVEN an we were suppose to get more snow on Sunday which we did and they plowed that again. Why not wait until after the Sunday storm? WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!! Besides that, if they are going to plow the sidewalks why do they blow all the snow into the peoples hedges and shrubs killing them, with all the salt. I watch them go by every snowstorm and they are plowing bare pavement with sparks flying. What a waste of money for the taxpayers of Northborough!
Why not take some of the money being used for the New Senior Center and pay for boyscouts or other groups and have them go around and shovel out eldery peoples driveways, do their grocery shopping for them or mow their lawns? This town is spending more money on things that we don't need than on things that are badly needed.
