Wasting police resource for "bears in the trash" ( Steamboat Pilot), "leaking pipes", and "I'm stuck and can't get out" should be a reason for a ticket and a fine. Maybe we could recoup some revenue by charging people for wasting the cops time.
Great for a good laugh though.
3 calls for leaking water, which would be the landlords or homeowners responsibility.
Why are people calling the POLICE for leaking water?

I spoke to quick and offered to help, but I guess I did not pick up on the "outside city limits" part. I don't think it's practicle for me to try and shovel a half mile long road with a shovel and a snowblower, it would take all day.
If I had a plow for my truck, I'm there, but I don't and they seem to want astronomical amounts for them.
I'll still gladly help those inside city limits with driveways and sidewalks, I'm just not prepared to do much else.
I agree with you Mark, if you're going to live in the country, you're kind of on your own, but they started this and now people depend on it. Just yanking it with no workable solution is what got people all riled up, including myself.
I don't know what it costs to plow a half mile driveway, but I would hope those local businesses who are going to get the upcoming job might find it in their hearts to not gouge the elderly and cut them a break on the cost.
And yea, not going to be pleasant to see what else gets cut.
Unfortunately I cannot help those folks so far from town, plus I do not have a plow, but I will gladly help those in need within the city.
What I do have is a shovel, a big snowblower, a truck to haul it in, a strong back (for my age) and plenty of time.
I think it's pretty sad that they cannot find some other frivolous item to be cut, say, one of those new shiny trucks I see driving around, that would pay for a couple years worth of plowing itself.
Our seniors are the ones who BUILT this town, why cut them off, literally?
Cut something else off, it cannot be that hard to find one $12000 item each year that the county can do without.
Any senior reading this who might need some help this winter, whenever it comes, send me an email.
I'll come dig you out and a hot cup of tea and a cookie is all I will need.
They needed to be shut down years ago, it's about time they were. Close them and do not allow them to reopen, it's obvious they could care less about the health of their customers. No room for that attitude.
Good grief, after the couple decades of gross food, filthy house and general nastiness, one could only hope they are closed, and closed for good.
I am sorry, but this man, and his partner, deserve WAY more than just a CPW recognition.
This man decided to "fight" instead of "flight", that decision saved TWO law enforcement officers that day.
I can only HOPE I have the same frame of mind at the moment of truth.
Sir, you are the hero in my book today, and tomorrow.
I salute you, I salute your partner.
