I have seen on TV and heard on the radio for the past couple of weeks about residents getting out and clearing the hydrant's three-feet-each-direction of snow (Jan. 18 news article, "Fire crews battling extreme freezing temps, buried hydrants"). This is a concern of mine, mostly because of the fact that most of the people who live on our block are either elderly or young and work all day.
My question is, where are the people who work for the city (maintenance). This should be in their job. Most people in our block are seniors and can not get out to do this. What are we paying taxes for?
City crews ride by in their brand new trucks to read our meters and never get out of their warm trucks.
First it's lawns, gutters, and now hydrants. What is next? The water that runs down our gutter is charged at $7.50 per month to us.
Thanks, Weber County. I'm fed up.
