I’ve been following the recent discussions about the flooding in Croton Harmon Train station; I even went to the poorly attended Trustee discussion of the topic on Monday, January 23, 2006. It strikes me that if commuters want to get the town to do something about the problem, they (we—I am one of those who parks somewhere nearer to Ossining than Croton, by the salt shed, to save my car) need to speak in a louder, more organized manner.
I know that once you practically strip to the waist, wade to your car, stand fuming in freezing water waiting for the tow truck to arrive, and get home three hours later, steeped in the realization that your totaled car is not covered by your, or the town’s insurance, you’re probably not in the mood to do anything organized. Unless we all do, however, I don’t see how the flooding problem will ever be addressed.
A start? Anything will do — letters, here to Crotonblog, to the Gazette, local news and newspapers, and above all, to the trustees. I see that some people have already done this. Where are the rest of us? More please!
