Safe Winter Roads for St. Paul
Our politicians need to correct our current winter weather road maintenance guidelines. With this petition we want to let our mayor and district representatives know that we want safe winter roads in Minnesota's capital city. This means snow plowed in a timely fashion and salting happening in icy weather. If there is a snowfall of 3+ inches that ends before 5 p.m. on a given
day, we want plows out during the overnight hours of that same 24-hour
period (not 30+ hours later as is the current structure). This is a huge safety issue and it is also a financial issue. We pay taxes for services. We need to get to work to pay our taxes. Given the lack of plowing and delayed response to snowy weather, many of us have not made it to our jobs. We get hit twice economically - taxes that aren't providing the service we are due and lost work time. We don't want an increase in taxes, we want our taxes used appropriately and for safety. If you agree, please take part by letting your 'signature be heard'!
