  1. Snow Storm Coming Help!!
    I learned yesterday in church that two members had fallen on the city’s ice covered streets and sustained severe injuries resulting in a broken leg for one and fractured wrists for another. Both women, aged in years will be hospitalized for extended periods due to the seriousness of their injuries. With a new storm imminent more injuries will be sustained by others.

    How many have been injured already? What data has been collected that shows what extent in health injuries and cost the citizens have incurred. What areas are more dangerous than others. And where is the apology from the city for allowing these hazardous conditions to materialize and continue to exist. And I’m speaking specifically about their error in judgement that led to the city being without salt.
