City shouldn't talk about ice removal

Editor:

This is in regard to a Dec. 23 article about keeping our sidewalks clear of ice. Of all people to tell us about sidewalk winter maintenance shouldn't be city Public Works Director Peterson or his assistant Jenson because they can't even take care of our streets, and we pay them.

I have worked in all the Rocky Mountain states and worked in a lot of different cities, and not once have I seen poor maintenance like Havre.

I was out at Rocky Boy the other day, and all the villages I looked at were graded. I can't believe the city wants to annex more neighborhoods when it can't even take care of what we have.

The state road crews do a good job of keeping 1st Street, 5th Avenue and 14th Avenue clear.

The city crews all seem to work hard, they just need Peterson and Jenson to implement a snow removal program. All I ever hear from Jenson is the same song he's been singing the last couple of years — we will keep the emergency routes clear and that's where it always ends.

Well the secondary streets are also dangerous and need attention. To quote Mr. Peterson, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. "

Practice what you preach. Lesley Poitra, Havre
