What happened to impressive roadside maintenance? Writer asks

'For years maintenance on roads here was always very impressive, without spraying; what happened?' - Marie Freeman
Personal commentary

Marie Freeman writes:
Not all of us can afford or have good health to maintain our road frontage. Why have I paid property taxes for decades and need to maintain my road frontage? Have no children paid school tax for decades! My frontage is a jungle! Not been maintained at all this year. I asked for no spraying after my mulberry tree turned brown, my pecan tree, walnut tree, and my peach trees I cut down this month! Blackberries on road frontage had no fruit, however the briars weren't even affected. I have a spring not 75 ft from road to, old timers use to tell me the wagon train gathered water from. They mowed once down my road this year, skipped my frontage! Guess because of the red flags. Side boom mowing not done at all. For years maintenance on roads here was always very impressive, without spraying; what happened? --Marie Freeman
