With all the taxes that Scrantonians pay, you would think that basic city services would work. The city of Scranton had at least one week to prepare for this blizzard. The people of Scranton were ready! Many of us got our shovels and salts ready to go. Some of us even stocked up on supplies just in case. We took the forecast concerning the weather seriously. Nevertheless, the Scranton government is taken by surprise by this storm!!!
It is no time for civility!! In a city filled with aged people, the city has a priority to make sure that the roads are clear! This is so emergency res ponders can mobilize if needed. What we see is many roads that haven’t even been plowed at all! People in Scranton are literally trapped in their home with no help from the local government. Attempts to complain about these conditions are met with indifference or excuses. If there is anything that demonstrates the complete and utter incompetence of the Scranton government, this is it! My prayers with the people in Scranton that nothing happens to them in these trying times. The Scranton government is great at taxing Scrantonians and raising fees, but when it comes time to perform they drop the ball! The had time to prepare for this. They should have been plowing since the snow started and continued overnight, non-stop. If they do not have enough personnel, they should contract out some help. The city has 4.5 million to pay lawyers to sell the Sewer Authority , but they do not have money to make sure they perform essential services. And they have the nerve to offer nothing but excuses! Very well! We will see what these excuses will be worth come election time. City officials are far too comfortable with failure. Why do they have their jobs!? Why support this incompetence? If I were mayor, I would plow the streets myself if it was needed!!
