Neighborhood Patrol. Fri., Feb 10, 2006 4 pm

Cold day, partly sunny to overcast. Snow is in the air.

Covered NE sector of neighborhood bordered by New Scotland, S. Manning, Western Ave
and Euclid St. Also, streets around St Catherine's Church/School.

Salt trucks must have been out in force last night. Roads white with excessive salt
dumping. Some streets so bad that excessive salt piled up at curbsides. Many roads
showing the detrimental effects of excessive salt, potholes and cracks. Also, street
trees in decline.

Unless heavy Spring rains come soon, our neighborhood can expect a severe case of the
White Death when the excess salt accumulations on roadsides become airborne with the
passing traffic and March winds.

This excess salt rots our expensive motor vehicles, and road surfaces, kills street trees and when airborne, deteriorates the exteriors of our homes, requiring more often expensive maintenance and repairs. The airborne road salt also is a health problem, especially when it blends with vehicle emissions from the growing volumes of
traffic on our neighborhood streets.

How much will the public take, before this madness is halted?
