Thanks for neighborly snow removal


February 6, 2020 | View PDF

Thank you to everyone who has been moving snow. I appreciate the neighbors with shovels. The private contractors diligently keeping driveways and parking lots clear. The Borough guys who gently remove driveway berms while also maintaining the roads. Of course the State guys, who are most certainly doing extra as we all know their budget has been reduced.

I will admit I am a bit over all this snow and ready to be awoken by birds. But for now, I appreciate the distant beeps of the plow trucks that serenade the early mornings. As I lay in my warm bed I have a deep gratitude for those out in the dark and cold mornings making sure Haines’ roads are safe. Thank you to all of you and your families who take up the slack at home while you’re out taking care of the community.
