My township is stupid. Literally. They rip up a sidewalk on one of the busiest streets in town and put grass over it. Most of the kids who walk to school from our section of town go on this street to school. So now those same kids have to walk on the street to get to school, and in the winter time, our township doesn’t plow the streets so well either. So the township is now forcing kids to walk on Icy Streets in the middle of winter. I can see a lot of parents starting to drive their kids to school.

Meanwhile the township also has rebuilt a brand new sidewalk, on another major street. But this one is the scenic street, along the water. Where tourists go. Can’t have them walk on the road. We can have our kids walk on busy streets but not locust tourists. Great message you are sending there township! Safety last in our township.

This is the same township that has subsidised a golf course on public land to the tune of 3/4 of a million dollars in the last 10 years. But we cannot afford to make sidewalks so kids can be safe.
