Staying safe in Union

To the Editor:

A big, heartfelt thank you to Union Trustee Larry Beebe, Village President Robert Wagner, and the part-time police department.

We have been to your charming town many times, and I’ll feel much safer the next time I visit the railroad museum knowing that I won’t be run over by ATVs or a Gator driven by a resident who lost the use of his legs 27 years ago.

Thank you, Mr. Beebe, for doing your elected duty by responding to the numerous complaints of residents, even though you can’t seem to recall the number of residents or the meeting where the enforcement discussion took place. I’m sure that you and the Union board must have an extremely full and busy meeting schedule to remember such minor details.

Probably one of the hot topics taking up so much time and energy on further public safety is the discussion on whether to have red-light cameras in Union. I’m sorry, I forgot, you need to have at least one red light in town to have a red-light camera. My mistake.
