This is absolutely ridiculous that the county road department cannot grade the roads, or salt and cinder hills, till four days after the worst of the worst is over with. They wait till it is suppose to get to 46 degrees, before we see them on January 18, 2018.
You have sick, elderly people with health problems, and single parents that need to get to work. This is not just a winter problem, it is a year round problem. Sweatt Road in Montreal is really bad year round. Farmers tear things up going down these roads that have not been maintained regularly or appropriately. The county shed supervisor should be out checking on their employees, as the commissioner should be checking on the county road supervisor to make sure he is doing his job. Making sure they are doing what they are paid to do.
Let me remind you that our county taxes pay those people's wages. That is also where supervisors and commissioners get their wages, our county taxes. I know that the first step is to talk to the supervisor, but he also needs to be on the road checking the workers that are under him. I am not the only one to complain. Many people have made that dreaded phone call to the county shed just to be ignored. Calls have been made to the appropriate people, but they just don't seem to get that if it wasn't for the tax payers they would not have that job! I am sure there is someone out there that would be more than willing to put the effort in, and do the work to receive that paycheck.
I have never written Lake Sun before. This shows you how upset, mad, and disgusting this problem has become. One of the employees that grades the road told a person that they would get to it when they got time. Well I know for a fact that some, not all of them, of the road graders spend a lot of time on their phones texting, talking, or watching movies extensively.
This has got to stop, because we are not getting our moneys worth! We are a county with a lot of revenue, that is not being spent appropriately. I am not a politician, but there is a lot of problems with our county and some of the workers.
