Thanks for the quick snow-removal response

In last week's Xpress, I wrote a letter regarding snow and ice being removed from the sidewalks in front of city-owned buildings — specifically, the West Asheville library and police station. The letter was written on a Tuesday. That Tuesday afternoon, the Xpress Twitter feed published a number to call to have snow removed from any city-owned buildings. Tuesday night I drove down Haywood Road and was impressed and somewhat amazed to find three firemen with 90 percent of the sidewalk shoveled. I tip my hat to the Xpress for their action in making this happen and to the city and fireman of the West Asheville/Haywood Road fire station for getting the job done right. I happily retract my criticism of both.

    Don’t worry …. The White House still had uncollected trash piled up for the DL to walk by the other day. Some things take a bit longer than usual.
