Since winter is coming, at our last meeting we discussed some of the concerns that come with the snow & cold...
- Shoveling sidewalks of people unable to shovel themselves
(Note: 2 people volunteered to try to shovel walks of seniors on
Simcoe Street from Ellice to Sargent)
- Icy sidewalks (public & private)
- Cheaper sand/salt made available at several local stores?
- Kids playing on streets holding onto vehicles
- Shopping for elderly shut-ins
- Help carrying groceries, especially month-end (carts don't work)
- Publicize phone # for people passed out in the cold
- Info on dealing with landlords not repairing furnaces, windows, etc
- Snowman contests for kids
- Christmas lights brighten up the area
- Garbage bins at Mansfield Court
Our next meeting will focus some energy on addressing these problems.
