Letter: Snow Removal in Nelson

Letter: Snow Removal in Nelson

To The Editor:

I happened to be in downtown Nelson recently and appreciated the huge job the City still has to do.  At the same time, I appreciate why so many people are walking on the roads – many sidewalks continue to be impassible. 

Many local residents missed the boat in not clearing successive snow falls ; but choosing to wait until the task seems impossible.

Walking on the roads is not a solution to pedestrian safety – nor is a complaint driven sidewalk clearing bylaw.  Like cutting your lawn, it’s much easier after each small growth. 

The City needs to actually enforce the bylaw or remove it from the books and just ask pedestrians to use the roads during the winter.
