Let every body clean there own, and compensate them... much faster, and cheaper,
Not only should they pick up debri, the city should look into absorbing the cost of removing any dangerous limbs and trees, from personal residences.
This power outage should be a wake up call for our local officials. Instead of "doing the same plan we do year after year," perhaps you could add assessing current dangers and remove them.
If you compare the cost of removing future risks to the cost of running a city during a disaster or any adverse weather situations, I believe the numbers would be shocking.
Don't forget, cities are allowed to sell lumber as a revenue source.
From Spoiled to power: "Not only should they pick up debri, the city should look into absorbing the cost of removing any dangerous limbs and trees, from personal residences."
Great, another "It isn't my responsibility or fault" person. If it is YOUR property, YOU take care of it.
I feel if you are on private property, and its private property for a reason, than it should be your responsibility to clean up from any kind of storm. I live on private property myself, and my husband and i clean up our land, and our neighbors bc she has a disabilty. We burn the limbs that fall and rake up the little things. Its good exercise as well. It may take several days, but like i said, no i dont think the county should be responsible for private property clean up. Now i will say if the disaster is way to big for residents to haul off debris, and it calls for heavy equipment, or even if the residents are elderly than maybe other arrangements should be made. I personally like to do manual labor within reason, and some people need to get out in their yards, and do some work. If you have friends to help, than the more the marrier. Everyone come together to make their residents look more clean, and that does bring people closer together. Thank you! Crystal
