To the editor:
I would like to give a big thank you to the employees of the Beech Grove Department of Public Works for their good work in cleaning our streets.
Over the past three years, much has been done in replacing equipment and adding spreaders that makes snow removal easier to accomplish. I think most agree that our guys do a nice job of clearing streets under adverse conditions.
In the spirit of making this job better for our employees, it is our intent to replace front-line service vehicles by this spring. We will purchase new plowing equipment to further enhance our plowing capabilities.
I also would be remiss if I didn’t thank this same group of employees for their continued trash pickup under cold conditions. Our friends to the north decided to suspend trash collection earlier in the week for one day as a result of the weather, but our dedicated employees continued to serve you.
We have simply the best trash pickup and city services around; I’m grateful for that.
Dennis B. Buckley
Mayor of Beech Grove
