Wants sand and salt gone

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - Updated: 7:28 PM

Dear Editor,

I have owned my home in Lake Pleasant since 1968. I maintain my property (cutting lawn, trees etc.)

For the last couple of years the town has not removed the sand and salt from the front of the house. Therefore the sand and salt is killing my grass and trees. I made three phone calls to [Superintendent of Highways] Mr. Desrochers last year but he never returned my calls.

I went to his office and he stated after the men are done working on Page Street he would send them up; needless to say this never happened. This year I went to Mr. Desrochers' office again about the sand and salt. He stated he would take a look and suggested I go to a town meeting.

My concern is in the past the town removed the sand and salt it put there from plowing in the winter with no problem. Why is there a problem during the past couple of years? How can this problem be solved?
