Valley Viewpoints: Why refuse to pay?

by Sue Gravelle of Fulton

I have enjoyed our mild winter. As in recent years, I employed the services of an individual to keep my driveway cleared of snow.

I am very fortunate to know this person, as he also kept my sidewalk and steps cleared and when necessary, also put down salt and sand.

I am very saddened to hear there were a handful of individuals who refused to make a final payment for snow-removal services. I am assuming that the reasoning, if it can be called that, is that no snow clearing ended up being necessary during the last half of winter.

Just as a customer expected to have a clear driveway, the service provider expected to be paid. It was a contractual agreement. In return for various customer to be able to get to work to earn a living, the agreed upon fee for snow removal was the service provider’s living.
