Use common sense with pipes in cold weather

Published: Monday, March 17, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

This is in response to the Saturday, March 8, SV Weekend paper’s front-page headline, “Were residents notified?” What happened to common sense?

People have let water drip during cold weather for decades. In 2014, it is Mayor Nauman’s fault for not warning people? Let’s get real here.

Alderwoman Hoy is on the city council to represent Amboy people. Now, she’s all gung ho (after the fact) to blame the mayor.

It’s time to lay the blame at the right doors instead of pointing the finger at someone else.
