Isn’t it strange how we take so many of our municipal services for granted? Fire, police, public works, parks and recreation, recreation centre, library, water pollution plant are all taxpayer-funded, yet we expect the best and very seldom care about the men and women who make services safely mess seamlessly together.
Yes there are times when folks are clearing snow away from their driveways that a snowplow fills entrances in again. No driver takes delight in messing with you…..but snowplows need to keep clearing snow full steam ahead. Snow gets cleared away in record time when you consider the miles and miles of streets Midland has.
Yes it would appear we take our well oiled municipal services for granted. Our drinking water is safe, when you need firefighters or police they are at your door step in minutes. When power lines go down, PUC linemen are on the job in record time not matter the weather. Town of Midland should set aside one day in the year to salute these dedicated people with some kind of a tribute….why? They deserve it, that’s why.
