Remember to give thanks


It is a season to be thankful. One group of people who often get overlooked are the town employees.

Monday morning, the streets crew for the town of Saratoga had the roads closed on First Street while a tree was being removed from the St. Barnabas Church property. The tree had two cables on it to ensure that it would fall in the right direction.

Along with the tree removal team were the town of Saratoga employees making sure that everything went as planned.

In October, Saratoga was hit with a huge storm, one that damaged trees and brought several limbs to the ground.

The town employees picked up many of the large branches from personal property of town residents and hauled them to the landfill. Mayor John Zieger said during the Oct. 15 meeting, that removing the limbs cost the town between $7,500 and $10,000.

Zieger said that it was a community service, as many people were unable to remove branches from their property.

Even though that expense may be a burden on the town budget, the mayor and the town employees felt it was important enough to do for its community.

Every time a snow storm comes, the town employees are working to clear the streets to make sure that we can drive safely, even if it is on Thanksgiving, Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.

This Thanksgiving, take the time to thank the town employees who work so hard to make our streets safe to drive on.

We at the Saratoga Sun are sure it will be appreciated.
