Going to Penticton for a walk

The “Significant Snowfall” bylaw adopted by the present administration has a direct affect on the pedestrians.

Dear Editor,

Re: Thumbs Down, Jan. 15th edition

I would like to add that the Thumbs Down should have also been given to the Mayor and Town Council members for not getting the streets cleared of snow.

The “Significant Snowfall” bylaw adopted by the present administration has a direct affect on the pedestrians walking the streets and laneways of our town.

Some of our streets have sidewalks on one side only, so people living on the non-sidewalk side of the street have to cross an icy, rut-filled street to the sidewalk on the other side.

A lot of our streets have no sidewalks at all; the third bench and mine subdivision are prime examples. Here again, people have to walk on icy, bumpy, non plowed streets. I guess I’m going to Penticton for a walk.

Sincerely,

Dale Shanks
