This town needs to buy new "SIDE WALK PLOWS" and start clearing all the snow off the sidewalks when it snows out. Why wont they buy new sidewalk plows and clear our sidewalks for our kids. The town used to have 2 of them for years to clear the side walks, but it has also been way too many years since the town has had a sidewalk plow. Why ??? The town can spend millions on all the projects that have been done, and the ones that are going on, and that's fine, we need it, but why can't the town buy new sidewalk plows, at least buy 1 to keep our kids safe so they don't have to walk in the streets. I would really like to know the answer to this one.
