BONNIE COLEGROVE: Concerned about state of roads in cold weather

TO THE EDITOR:

Manistee County Road Commission needs to keep up on salting M-55. This road is not safe for people traveling it in the winter.

They keep U.S. 31 salted so it isn’t fair that we have to drive 25 mph on M-55, even with 4 wheel drive, just to keep on the roads.

We pay taxes twice a year and like to feel safe on the roads like everyone else. We have family that take their kids to school in Manistee, and we like to feel safe.

I called the Manistee County Road Commission and was told they only have one driver at night for all of Manistee. We need more drivers to properly care for our roads.
