To the editor:
“The roads are terrible!” Sound familiar? No matter what town you live in this can be heard by any number of townspeople. I’m a Westport resident and it seems the people who are the most upset are the most vocal.
We have all suffered through this miserable winter one snowstorm at a time and, with all the snow, an enormous amount of responsibility falls on our Highway Departments.
On Saturday Feb 15 we got dumped on again with almost a foot of snow in a very short period of time. In my line of work, I depend on our Highway Department to keep the streets clear. I want to say to the Westport Highway Department — You did an outstanding job, and with your skeleton crew and limited resources, you need to be commended for the job you did. The roads were passable throughout the night and by morning,it was obvious you had nworked diligently for hours and hours.
Great job, and keep up the good work.
