The thanks good citizens get

So many issues that need addressing in the City of Pitt Meadows

Editor, The News:

Viewed with interest your story in today’s paper about the guy having a problem with Pitt Meadows council about downed trees and so on in our city.

There are many stories in the anal city – this was just one of them.

Here’s another.

Hammond was a disaster between Wildwood Crescent and Bonson Road on that crazy day, and traffic had to be diverted on to Wildwood Cres. and 116A Avenue to get around it.  Then a tree on 116A Ave. went down right across the road, blocking this new detour, right at a blind dogleg. There might have been some serious accidents on that blind corner.

My neighbour, doing the good citizen thing, went out (later joined by some other citizens), and began cutting the tree branches out of the street to clear it and piling the cut branches onto his lawn.

He wondered later if the city might help him clear his front yard – maybe chip ’em, and haul them away.

But, now the city in its wisdom, says he’s on his own.

Not fair.

He should have left it there to block the buses.  I’m afraid that next time, good citizens will just stay home.
