Boulevards need to be looked after

Real estate signs should not be put on district property

The award for the most beautiful town in the world goes to Hope, B.C., Canada. We have it all – lakes, rivers and mountains.

I came to Hope in 1946 as a 12-year-old. I got lucky – Bud gave me a job (he’s a very smart man) and I worked for him for 50 years. Maybe he should be mayor again (work on him).

Back to the point of this letter. This is for the real estate salespeople in Hope. If you list a home because of divorce or estate sale, look after your boulevard. Why do you put your for sale signs on our boulevards? You can not sell the town’s property; it is reserved for politicians every four years.

There is a house with a realtor for sale sign on it. It was put up two years ago and the sign cannot be read due to weeds. You can’t pay someone $15 to cut grass out of your fee? If it is an empty lot, cut it too.

After looking around town, I think Wayne Dyble and Rob Pellegrino do a good job.

I am cutting the grass at some of these boulevards (with Bud’s lawn mower) to give a little back to our wonderful town.

On another note, I understand the swear pipeline under Kawkawa Lake has ruptured. I hope we townspeople can afford to fix the pipes very soon, or did we spend all our surplus money on a steam cleaner?
