Towne Centre and snow day
Where were the managers of the Spotsylvania Towne Centre the days after the 15-inch snowfall? I have no idea. I called and visited the mall to no avail. But there is something motorists should no about the ring road around the mall: it is private. The mall and its owners, the Cafaro Co., are responsible for paving, filling potholes, and overall maintenance of the road. The county has no responsibility for the ring road.
In this letter, Mr. Fowler places partial blame on the county. However, the blame solely belongs to the mall and its owners if the snow and condition of the road were not up to par.
