Because this comes from Nicole’s business FB page, I have obscured the name. My point in grabbing this has nothing whatever to do with her business and its welfare.
Instead, I want to point out the phrase that is highlighted.
. . . depending on road maintenance.
Without road maintenance, Nicole and Joe would be unable to even leave their property. I bet they are stuck out there now. At least, I hope they are. The roads are in pretty bad shape at the moment where they live.
So, they need road maintenance, not only so that they can come and go from their property, but in order for her customers to come and go from her business. No road maintenance, no customers, no business, no money, no garden shed.
There is no private company that does snow removal. It would be less than efficient and really not feasible. If a private company did the snow removal, who is going to pay them? The people who travel the road? You gonna set up little kiosks everywhere so that if you want to travel this particular mile of highway, you have to put a dollar in the machine? And if it snows, the price goes to $1.25?
Exactly who do they think does that road maintenance?
