Parksville’s long grass a fire hazard

I am writing because I am concerned about all the long grass inside our city’s boundaries and the outskirts of Parksville. One spark and it would start the city on fire. There are seniors’ homes nearby, as well as city hall and other housing. Oh, my!

Did no one learn from the Fort Mac experience? It can happen so quickly.

Is this the area that the ‘homeless’ were told they could use? The end of Jensen Street in the woods there, where the long grass also is? Hmm… out of sight, out of mind?

Yes, this is a jab at the city; the long grass is still growing, and getting drier and drier. If I let my boulevard grow up and get wild, and it becomes an eyesore and a fire hazard, would the city not come to cut it for me, and send me the bill?

I know, I saw the workers cleaning the rock before the July 1 weekend… we now have clean rocks, but very long grass. I am not the only one who has commented on the grass situation.

Please, please, cut the grass, and remove it, bale it, give it to animal farms. Do something.
