Breckenridge snow removal lacking

Why does Breckenridge have the worst snow removal in the county? It’s been more than a week since the last snow and yet the gutters are full of snow and the sidewalks are just plain dangerous. It’s been this way all season. The snow plows push the snow onto the sidewalks and the sidewalk plow tries to push it back in the street, unsuccessfully. Because the gutters are full of snow, when it melts like this past weekend, we just get snowmelt on the sidewalks and the streets, which turns to ice at night. The sidewalks are pure ice several inches thick. You take your life in the hands when you try to walk down the street. It would be safer to walk in the middle of the street with the traffic. Don’t come to Breckenridge if you intend to get out of your car.
