Letter: Moorhead efforts deserve applause

The city of Moorhead came across some negative press recently in regard to their snow removal policy around the campuses of Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia. How they handled the initial snow removal was not the best practice, but how often do we learn from our mistakes? We should applaud their efforts to provide safe driving, parking and walking conditions around the campuses.

Drive around North Dakota State University and see if you can avoid pulling off to the side to allow another car to pass by. Try parking your car along the street with mounds of snow jutting 3 feet out from the curb. How about coming to a stop sign and trying to see if another car is coming? Good luck.

Although Moorhead is catching heat for its actions, the city has good intentions.
