Some Waltham Patch readers have called for the city to hire additional municipal workers and equipment to clear now, but do you agree?
The question has emerged in the wake of City Councillors recently criticizing Mayor Jeannette McCarthy for not having enough equipment and workers to handle the February blizzard. She plans to revamp the plowing system.
Consolidated Public Works Director Michael Chiasson ahs said told McCarthy he does not has enough equipment and that additional equipment is slated for future purchase. However, future purchases have not yet been funded.
What do you think? Should the city hire more workers and purchase more snow-clearing equipment? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
