Full Text

Dear editor, On January 6 there was an article in the paper about the Town of Halton Hills acquiring some money from the federal government that is labeled gas tax revenues. I have worked and lived in town since 1974 on a street that may see a street sweeper once per year. We do have some catch basins but they are so covered with leaves and junk that the water can't get through so it just runs down the road. Most of the streets in the immediate area have at least had a new top coat of asphalt but we only seen to get cold patch in the holes. The people on the Trails Advisory Committee must live in a part of the town that has good roads. To my thinking the gas tax money should be used to repair ALL roads in town and the rural areas before any of the money is used for other things. I don't have a problem with the maintenance of the trails but as for the creation of new trails/paths that should have to wait or they do some fundraising for the Trails Association. Maybe someone should charge a user fee or licence fee like they do for snowmobiles so they could do their own maintenance. As for the environmentalist that is totally out of the question. The six o'clock news tells it all. Gord Kearsey, Georgetown
