I have a major issue with the snow removal on West Beasley Street. I realize that we have gotten a lot of snow over the last week, but the removal process on our street is unacceptable.
I also realize that this being a dead end street, it is the bottom of the priority list but West Beasley Street is by no means a quiet street.
Along with apartment buildings, condos, duplexes and stand alone homes, it is also the approach to Jubilee Manor in which any one of the residents could need emergency medical attention at any time.
On Saturday, I saw the City of Nelson snow plows plowing bare roads before even coming up our street once. When the road is plowed, they will not come within eight or nine feet of the end of my driveway, leaving me nearly an entire car length of City of Nelson roads to shovel off myself.
Do I not pay property taxes yearly to ensure that roads in the City of Nelson are properly maintained?
Because of the inadequate snow removal, our street is becoming dangerous. The snow piles are so high, a person pulling out of their driveway cannot adequately see if any vehicles are coming, which could potentially cause a serious accident, nor can cars see children who may be playing around the piles of snow.
Is it going to take somebody getting hurt for the City of Nelson to realize that it needs to step up the snow removal process?
