As Aurorans start bunkering down and await the first real snowstorm a number of them are waiting for what this also brings . That being unread newspapers clogging up snowblowers.
Brought up at this week’s General committee meeting by Clr. Buck was the concern voiced to her by several residents about what can be done about unwanted and poorly delivered newspapers.
Papers clogging up snowblowers as documented on Ruth Butler’s site here: http://ruthbutler.net/blog/how-the-decline-of-the-newspaper-industry-crippled-our-snow-blower/ is only one headache. Newspapers delivered one after another piling up at a residence is a clear sign it is not occupied.
As the world goes digital it leaves one to wonder if the Era Banner in the business of delivering news or nuisance?
I was encouraged to watch Aurora Council take a pro active stance on this issue, unfortunately I didn’t get to hear the debate as the town’s poorly implemented General Committee video stream cut out, as it usually does.
If the debate was newsworthy perhaps it will be covered in a future edition of the paper. Let’s just hope that arrives before the next snowfall.
