Letter to the Editor: Snow Removal Issue

Los Alamos

I read the letter from the county reminding people to shovel their sidewalks. What about reminding the county that many of us do shovel, only to have the county come blasting down the streets and throwing snow (twice as much and about five times as heavy) back on the sidewalk?

We try very hard to keep the sidewalks clear. We live on a curvy hill, and the plows come down fast and furious and make the situation worse for those of us who do shovel … even when we wait until it has stopped snowing, as the county suggests. 

I would like to remind the county to be aware of where the sidewalks are, and try to not make shoveling so difficult and heavy. Thank you.
