Letter: Snow removal services lacking

January 13, 2011

To the editor:

After the first snow hit our streets almost 40 hours ago, we finally saw some snow removal in our neighborhood. If we were still being served by Leavenworth County, that would have happened fairly soon after the first snowfall — not after the second one 24 hours later.

We were promised to maintain if not improve services in our area when we were annexed. To no one’s surprise, things have gotten worse as we pay more for Basehor’s folly of annexing as much of Leavenworth County as possible and then wasting the extra tax dollars and worsening the services provided.

Wow. We can’t wait for foreign-owned Deffenbaugh to be our trash service; maybe they will pick up Basehor’s City Council.
