Letter to the Editor: Great job plowing Harrison’s snow

To the Editor:

We are writing because we think it is important for the people to know what a great job was done removing the snow by the Harrison Department of Public Works with the guidance of director Robert Van Riper.

The men spent many hours of continuous plowing and salting the roads to make sure our emergency personnel can get to our residents if needed. The days after the storm, they continued to work diligently to clear the streets of snow. Within six days, Harrison was cleaned curb to curb and all the schools as well with the assistance of the school staff. A job well done. Also we would like to thank the fire and the police departments for a job well done.  On behalf of our families, we say, “Thank you.”

The Bennett and DePierola families,
