Maybe the county should just erect signs stating they favor saving money over people's saftey.

I have made that same statement for years. Lyon county & the city of Marshall are one of the worst areas I've come across as far as snow removal.

i am certain that they would accept help if any of you "experts" think that you could do a better job, if only there was some way to help minimize the amount of snow compaction...oh wait how about people NOT driving during times when "no travel is advised" thus giving the plows a chance to clear the roads before it gets compacted
