Harrison Streets Disgraceful

I am in total shock while riding in Harrison this morning, while commuting into the town for work, Every major road and even North Arlington and Kearny was cleared of the minor snowfall and ice while in Harrison the streets where not touched at all and it's almost 8AM.

Someone should be held accountable for this many of the streets are sheets of ice. Now I don't want to get into the Tanski thing all over again but we all have to admit at least the streets where cleared no matter if it was a minor or major snowfall.

To the Mayor and the council have never complained on any BB on this great town, but where are we going to draw the line now that safety is on the line.

I guess Ron the Catman was asleep at the switch! I'm not surprised how can a laborer run a Department?

Yes you are right about that, when Billy was in charge the streets were well taken care of now we have absent paid employees.

WONDER WHAT THE TOWN IS GOING TO DO WITH ALL THE LEFT OVER MONEY FROM THE SNOW CLEAN UP FUND!!!!!!!!! WE ONLY HAVE ABOUT 2 MONTHS LEFT TO WORRY ABOUT. DOES ANYONE KNOW THE DOLLAR AMOUNT ALLOCATED FOR SNOW REMOVAL/CLEAN UP? MAYBE THE TOWN WILL BUY A NEW SNOW MELTER WITH THE LEFT OVER MONEY.

The call is supposed to come from the police dept about the streets being slippery. Then they go out right away. But they weren't called in early to get out there.

I THINK THE POLICE HAVE ENOUGH ON THEIR HANDS, CAN'T ANYONE DO THEIR OWN JOB I MEAN LETS GET REAL HE IS GETTING PAID ENOUGH RIGHT??

take the money saved from snow removal and give a tax credit to the residents.  Also fire/lay off 6 town employees and give those tax credits back to the taypayers as well.

Maybe your boss needs to fire/layoff you? If your selfemployed maybe your bussness should fold up.

I Beiieve a laborer makes approximately $ 19, 775- to start. The Catman MUST MAKE MORE, just look at his level of education, the experience with trucks he has!, and his great management skills, especisly with people!

You are 100% right! I remember growing up in Harrison and it was a beautiful town to walk around in back in a day. The greenery is what did it. I think, the only nice tree lined street we have left is davis ave. I know I would rather pick up leaves than garbage everyday. And as far as the garbage being picked up, I know for fact that when the sweeper and the mad vac go by, there is only 1 person who goes out of his way to actually pick everything up he poss. can, even if it means getting up out of the vac to do it by hand. He knows who he is cuz I tell him all the time Thank-you to his face. I may not think too highly of this person on a personal level, but as a town employee, we need to have more like him. And the sad part about it is, I dont think he was even raised here in town. They should all have the same work ethic as he does. Maybe then our streets, etc. would look a whole lot better and dont forget to PUT THE TREES BACK!!!!!

At least go the the town hall and ask if the topic can be brought up at the monthly meeting since I assume that everything has to be "on the agenda" or it is not allowed. If not, then write about it in a letter to the mayor.

The streets weren't that bad and they were cleaning them before 8;00 a.m. - yeah right away Kearny and North Arlington cleaned their streets - you have to be joking - I no many people that live in these towns and their streets never get cleaned - so stop trying to start problems. It was smart thinking why pay overtime for that cleanup - the streets were up and ready by 8:00 - 8:30 - so go back to where you live - I glad they trying to save us taxpayers some money -
