Description

VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE RECENT SNOW REMOVAL ON NEWELL HILL IN NEWELL PA 15466 (January 12,2016)..MY DAUGHTER AND THREE YOUNG GRANDCHILDREN LIVE IN NEWELL. I KNOW IT WAS A FAST MOVING STORM AND DROPPING X-AMOUNT OF SNOW QUICKLY. THREE TRACTOR TRAILERS WHERE STUCK. ONE TRAILER WAS STUCK FOR OVER 6 HOURS BEFORE FINALLY A PENN DOT MADE ANOTHER PASS WITH SCRAPPING AND LAYING SALT. THIS IS INCOMPHRENSIVEABLE WITH ALL THE MODERN TECHNOLOGY TODAY THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY OF KEEPING THIS HILL CLEAR. AS YOU MAY KNOW THERE IS ONLY ONE ROAD IN AND SAME ROAD OUT AND IF A CAR, TRUCK, TRACTER TRAILER GETS STUCK THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE OF NEWELL ARE IN JEOPARDY IF A MEDICAL EMERGENCY IS NEEDED AND THE THOSE VEHICLES CAN NOT CLEAR THAT HILL. WHY CANT NEWELL HILL BE PUT AT TOP OF THAT LIST...JUST LIKE ALBANY HILL SAME AREA SAME PROBLEM...I KNOW IT IS JUST A LITTLE TOWN BUT MY GRANDCHILDREN LIVE IN THAT LITTLE TOWN AND I HOPE FOR THERE SAKE AND EVERY OTHER RESIDENT OF THAT LITTLE TOWN OF NEWELL PA SHOULD BE HIGH ON THAT LIST.
