Let highway superintendent do job

October 7, 2012
The Leader Herald

This is just my opinion, but why not let town of Broadalbin Highway?Superintendent Lance Winney do his job and stand behind him when he fires those who walk off the job and those who do not do their job?

As for the town of Broadalbin Supervisor, why should the taxpayers have to pay these legal bills? If Mr. DiGiacomo knew he was going to have to pay these fees, maybe he would have picked up the telephone and saved the taxpayers some money. How much has this cost the town? DiGiacomo did not save us any money here, and should resign.

My last point is about the town possibly losing a roughly $76,000 contract with the county to plow 14 miles of county-owned roads. Plowing opens the town of Broadalbin up to possible multi-million dollar lawsuits. If those roads are not kept up, a slick lawyer could claim the town is responsible for an auto accident. That could cost the town a lot more than the roughly $76,000 it will not get.

Also, that's the gross, not the net cost. Labor costs and fuel costs will shrink that roughly $76,000 to who knows what. We could not break even and lose money in a very bad, snowy winter.
