I would like to address the question of snow removal and the affect on handicapped parking. It is a sad reality that in this town the removal of snow off the streets also precludes the ability to have access to the side walk from the handicapped spaces.
I have written to and received no response from the Town of Greater Napanee about this matter. Besides being handicapped myself I escort an elderly lady around town and find that the ability to let her safely out of the vehicle at a designated handicapped spot is impossible as she is faced with a bank of snow in which to transverse.
I realize that for a big snow plow to be able to do the task of also keeping the handicapped parking sport clear would be difficult but, could not the town not send a smaller vehicle around to make sure that anyone entering one of these parking spaces (particularly downtown) can safely have access to the sidewalk walk without having to try and navigate a mound of snow.
It is my hope that this matter will be resolved and that the elderly and handicapped with be able to safely access the sidewalks from these spots.
