LETTER: Street dust a health issue

Reader says snow removal budget should be used to remove dust.

I am in full agreement with the recent slug regarding the dirt on Nelson streets. I also believe that breathing all that dust in the streets, businesses, and homes of downtown residents is a health issue.

Why isn’t the money that has not been spent on removing snow this winter being used to clean the streets instead?

There are still piles of leaves from the fall, along with fine dust, sand and gravel. It is impossible to open a window or door for fresh air without also getting a coat of dirt dust over everything.
