Letter: Crystal Lake sidewalks should be cleared

To the Editor:

I am Mitchell Altmann from Crystal Lake and have lived here all my life.

Over the years, I have noticed many people trudging through the snow or even worse – walking on the street.

This is because Crystal Lake does not have an ordinance that sidewalks must be cleared of snow, like many other communities.

I believe that if the city of Crystal Lake adopted an ordinance that sidewalks must be cleared, it would be much safer for people who regularly use walking as a way of transportation.

It has happened where people have been hit by cars resulting in serious injury or death because of having no option but to walk on the street.

We don’t have to wait for something like this to happen in Crystal Lake to make a change.
