Editor: The old analogy “A new broom sweeps clean” certainly proved true upon Langley City streets for the snow removal service provided to the taxpayer through the last two snow storms.
What a nice surprise to see the crews out the first Saturday night, plowing and sanding. For the past five or six years, this hasn’t happened. The following weekend was more of the same.
I spoke to one of the plow operators to thank him for the great service, and wanted to know why the change. He stated we have a new manager in charge of public works.
So to the new manager, I say “thanks.” Your crews know what to do, so thanks again for turning them loose.
The Langley City taxpayers have always appreciated five-star snow and ice control service. It’s nice to see it again. Having a new mayor probably helped too.
To the working crews, thank you. Enjoy your earned and deserved overtime.
