The Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation is in need of snow shovels



  • William 5 years ago

    I noticed that the residential sidewalk was cleared much better than the ones at West Park and Bucky Boyle. As an Allentown homeowner, I realize that the city can fine us for not clearing our sidewalks. Isn't the city risking a law suit if someone should fall, especially at a place like West Park?

    I suppose if that happened, they would just raise taxes and make us pay.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your feet after the next snowfall.

    I can't believe the Parks Department and the West Park Association have left West Park like that... and with Allen High School students walking through it no less. When I was younger (much younger) we used to pick a city to go to on holidays. I know we came to Allentown (to Hess, etc.) a couple of times and it would have been a big disappointment not to be able to walk around the parks on New Year's Day because of snow and ice.

    I know the Parks Department is short staffed. I'm sure there is a lot to do in every season... but, seriously? I would hope they realize that some of us really do like to walk the parks in snow.

    just curious ... does anyone remember how the parks stacked up last year?

    In Sept. 2009 39 City workers were laid off. Most likely this is the reason why this condition exists?
