Letter: Road cleanup efforts pay off

To the editor:

Last spring, at just about this time, we submitted a letter lamenting the overwhelming amount of trash littering the lake/county roads in our area. Well, what a difference a year makes!

This letter is to profusely thank the highway department, the Huber program guys and anyone else involved in this sorely needed cleanup project. These guys were out in freezing rain picking up years-old trash from the ditches and swamps — not a fun job.

Unfortunately, there will always be more litter to replace it, but now we know how great it can look.

We’re sure we speak for most of the residents of Wescott (as well as the wildlife) when I say a big thank you!

Sue and John Flauger,

Town of Wescott
