Letter: Snow removal 'unacceptable'

Cross the town line,

roads suddenly are clear

As a Fairfield resident, I am writing once again about our town's ineptitude with snow removal. Understanding the obvious challenges throughout our region of a mega-storm, it's still baffling to me that our town cannot deliver decently cleared roads by Monday morning.

My wife and I commute to Westport, and it's a whole different world once you cross town lines. Their roads are plowed wider and are clear of the frozen crud that still covers most of Fairfield's important secondary roads.

Why? Is there some technological secret to plowing that we haven't discovered? It's embarrassing, maddening and unacceptable, especially given all the lip service we got all weekend from our First Selectman.

Please explain!
