Cleaning Up The Streets

To the Editor,

Strapping a rotary brush to the front of a Bobcat does not a street sweeper make. It just makes a huge cloud of dust, a health hazard and an incomplete job. Blowing the dirt on the pavement only produces a health hazard.

Lumby, at one time, had a good street sweeping machine run by very diligent operators producing clean streets very efficiently.

The Village ought to buy a good street sweeping machine instead of relying a hit and miss hiring of expensive out of town contractors that are paying for their machines at the expense of Lumby taxpayers.

A solution to part of the question of paying for the machine might be found by teaching the councilors to operate it. They could each put in a couple of shifts a week cleaning the streets properly. In this way we, the tax payer, might realize some tangible result from the above average salaries we pay these people each month.

Think about it Taxpayers, you are being taken for a ride.

Your friend,
Charlie Fisher,
Lumby, BC
