Stettler streets ‘like quicksand’

Has anyone else in Stettler noticed that, two weeks after a major snowfall, our streets are still a mess?

Dear Editor:

Has anyone else in Stettler noticed that, two weeks after a major snowfall, our streets are still a mess?

While residents and business owners dutifully clear the sidewalk, streets and parking lots in most places remain like quicksand. This is inexcusable for a town the size of Stettler.

I could understand if that was the case in the days immediately following a blast of winter, but two weeks is more than enough time to clean up the mess — and get ready for the next storm.

As it is, it appears we don’t care, or we assume that every motorist drives a heavy-duty truck.

The trenches that are supposed to pass for streets are treacherous, especially for the many seniors in our town, and the bad roads have no doubt contributed to the many car accidents in the area.

It’s going to be a long winter, if we don’t begin to clean our streets in a timely and orderly fashion.

Joyce Weber,

Stettler
