The big vac is a winner
To the editor:
I recognized the noise I heard coming down the next street. It was the sound of the Presque Isle Public Works vacuuming up the large rows of leaves.
It was a great feeling to know they might be on our street next, and they were. They cleaned every last leaf Darla and I had raked to the edge of our lawn and sidewalk. What a great service this is.
I do remember back quite a few years ago piling up the leaves and burning them, and then we went to filling large paper bags and hauling them to the landfill. What a job it was to fill a brown paper bag, especially when the wind was blowing hard. Anyone but me knows that a windy day was not a day to rake leaves again and again. A week later: still raking the same old leaves.
Now we have a real service thanks to the Presque Isle Public Works. Thanks to the big vac crew, no more fires, no more brown bags.
