Great show today Olivia & Jeff. However, Monday morning ,many residents in Boulder Pointe awakened to mean, expensive wooden signs from the city that were pounded into 5-7 feet of ice & snow that city snow plows dumped upon our sidewalks & yards. Signs said we are in violation of not removing snow. We have spent a fortune paying excellent private snow plow guys & gals to do our sidewalks only to be covered again by the City. Taking all payments to city hall & demanding to be reimbursed soooooon 😞
