I would like to take this opportunity to commend the members of the Gloversville Department of Public Works.
Recently my house was chosen in the sidewalk replacement drawing (which I put in for 25 years ago but no complaints here).
The DPW workers were here promptly each day, were cordial and very hard working. The results are wonderful, and the attention to detail reflects a professionalism they deserve to take pride in. A number of neighbors have stopped by and commented positively on the results and how efficiently and diligently the crew worked.
May I add that I have been a resident for about 30 years and during that time I have found DPW employees to be helpful and respectful to me as a taxpayer.
The DPW is a department that benefits we taxpayers in so many ways and I'm sure I couldn't be alone in recognizing the importance of their work.
Incidentally, it turns out that several of the personnel developed professional skills at our Hamilton-Fulton-Montgomery Board of Cooperative Educational Services, a local institution of value to the community.
