Snowplowing complaints fail to melt Kane foreman

January 17, 2015

Mike Beane has plowed snow for the borough of Kane for 38 years.
During his long career, he has heard annual criticism from residents and borough officials alike about the plowing of snow.
Beane, who has headed the borough Streets Department for the past five years, refuses to have a "melt-down" over the complaints.
