The Julie Weeks letter “Go Zags, but plow for all” (Dec. 20) is a good example of not knowing your facts.
Most of the streets that are on the Gonzaga campus are streets that have been vacated by the city. These streets become the responsibility of the university to maintain. So the plows you see are either Gonzaga’s own crews or private contractors that GU has hired to maintain these streets.
Though Gonzaga has helped put Spokane in the national spotlight, it does not receive preferential treatment from our city crews.
One other note: Some of the roads plowed out by GU forces were not roads the university is even responsible to plow.
Weeks’ assumption gave a bad rap to a good neighbor.
