On the morning after the first significant snowstorm of the winter in State College, up and down the street neighbors shoveled out their driveways. No big problem, even with 5 to 6 inches.
But wait, there was a problem. We got near the curb of the road along our properties and suddenly we were faced with a mountain of snow, sludge and pebbles that the good people plowing the road had piled into our driveways.
It requires monumental effort to remove this obstacle before we can proceed to wherever we need to go with our vehicles.
I propose a simple solution to this annual, repetitive problem: Let the Borough add $2 or even $3 to our taxes, specifically for the purpose of having a small tractor follow the snow-removal crew and dump this congealed seasonal mess on either side of our driveways.
My guess is that most households would welcome this assistance sufficiently to absorb a small extra fee for the service.
