We received a report today from a resident on Bethany Road. Evidently, a deer was hit in the middle of the night and now lay in the front of a family's yard. A call was made to the City of Milton and an employee was reached. The citizen requested that public works come and remove the deer. The employee responded that they were not allowed to go onto private property, but if the family in question were willing to pull the deer onto the road, they would be happy to come get it. When pressed about this response, she relayed that she was "just the messenger."
One has to wonder if this animal had not been hit in an open road neighborhood, but in another residential node, if the response would have been the same.
More and more, it appears that the families who reside in our open road neighborhoods play second fiddle to the over all majority. This is a dangerous road to take as these residents are the ones who will ultimately define what this city becomes. Tread lightly...
