Letter: Local road maintenance deserves praise

By on February 10, 2011

This past Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday produced the most severe snow emergency in over a decade. We awoke at 5 a.m. Wednesday morning to the news that all roads in Kane County were closed with drifts of four to six feet reported.

However, when we awoke the following morning, the roads had been cleared. And apart from the height of snow piled beside them in many places, we were able to go about business as if it had never happened.

Those responsible for road maintenance are no strangers to criticism when things go awry. In this circumstance, they are clearly deserving of high praise for what must have been an unseen, heroic effort.
