Cowichan Bay – Our tax dollars hard at work (overtime).
It’s Monday, Feb. 10 at about 9 a.m. I look outside and see about .5 cm of snow that had fallen over night. It is Family Day, a B.C. holiday. The schools are closed and many people are enjoying a long weekend. The traffic is light.
At approximately 11 a.m. I see a snowplow drive past my house scraping the road.
It’s drizzling, not snowing, and the temperature is well above zero.
By 2 p.m. the snow has washed from my driveway thanks to Mother Nature (free of charge). I will guess this is not the only snow removal truck on the road and that a snow removal crew is being paid, probably overtime.
What an incredible waste of taxpayers money. Surely there are many community necessities where our tax dollars can be better spent.
