To whom it may concern,
we have had one of the worst winter storms I can remember I thought
after getting out and about I would take time to say thank you to all
the City of Van Wert employees who worked hard to keep the roads in town
passable and for removing the snow from the downtown area. Thanks
should also be extended to the county and state employees who worked a
lot of overtime to keep the main arteries to the city and elsewhere open
as best they could. To all the emergency responders, city police,
sheriff’s office, Highway Patrol, Brickner’s and all the rural
communities volunteers, a big thank you goes out to them for their
dedication to their jobs.
I realize that what they did over the
last few days is part of their job but until you have personally had to
go out and plow snow over and over again on long routes and even longer
hours one can’t begin to realize the dangers involved in their jobs. The
roads are slick and icy but one can drive on the roads using common
sense to get where they need to be. For this, I am extremely thankful.
take the time to let the workers involved how much you appreciate their
time and efforts on your behalf. Hopefully we are done with this
weather and I hope the worse is over for 2014.
If I have missed anyone I am sorry and I didn’t mean to do so.
Thanks to all and have a great new year!
