Just wanted to come on here and say a BIG thank-you to the people of our City Department who make such a great difference in our town each and every day! Unfortunately, just as with everyone and everything, we tend to lose sight of just what they do...Ah, human beings!!! Love 'em or leave 'em...
As you know, we had a substantiel storm in Leoti a couple of days ago. I STILL have not heard how much rain we received but I can tell you that it was a BUNCH. Just a few years ago, our gravel streets and alleys would have been just terrible. People would have been fish-tailing and getting stuck all over the place. Oh, how well I remember those days... Stan and I along with other neighbors spent a considerable amount of time those days either pushing someone else's vehicle or having ours pushed. Today, that is no longer an issue thanks to the great maintenance that our City employees do practically each and every day.
I drive through other towns--small and big-- and see how poorly the employees handle (better word, UNhandle) their daily trash needs. Here, we can depend on our trash being removed every trash day which is always the same day every week unless, there is a holiday. Until a few years ago, if your trashday fell on a holiday, you had to wait until your next trashday to have it picked up. In other words, it was nothing if your trash was not hauled off for two weeks! Not anymore. If your trash day is on a holiday, I guarantee you that your trash will be picked up on the very next work day. It is sooo very nice that we can depend on these people to keep our lives running smoothly!
So, a big thank you goes out to EVERYONE on our City crew!!!
A person who doesn't miss slipping and sliding...
