To the Editor:
Ever since Tropical Storm Irene, a very large branch from a tree that is on city property has been laying on the wires that run from the telephone pole to my house on 61 Arlington Ave. All efforts on my part have been in vain. When I call the public works department, I get the same answer, “You are on the list.”
I am aware that the tree cutting crew is very busy and they are working all kinds of overtime to clean up the mess left by the storm and the “list” is very long, but I’m afraid the next big wind that comes along is going to leave me without power again.
If this happens, I’m going to start my own list and it will start with a sh__ and guess who’s going to be #1 on it.
