To the Editor:
I am writing in response to the article in Thursday’s Collegian about snow removal fines. Once again laziness rears its ugly head.
I am amazed at these two guys who have the nerve to complain about something so simple as shoveling their sidewalks within 24 hours of a snowstorm. What I find even more amazing is that they think the city should provide them with shovels, as if tax money could not be spent on something more useful. If you want to live in a house, whether you are a homeowner or a renter, than you should accept the responsibilities that come with it. Otherwise, choose to live in a complex where part of your rent goes to these such things.
A shovel costs much less than a fine, or even worse, a lawsuit because some poor unfortunate soul fell and broke something while trying to walk on a sidewalk.
It tends to snow sometimes, so instead of whining about some fine that was completely avoidable, buy a shovel and just remove the snow. It is not that hard.
