Frustrations Rise as Streets Not Cleared
Contractor Brian Dargie expressed his frustrations “For lack of a better term, they’ve been left to die. They’re going around for the 15th time doing the main arteries & not pushing any snow off the streets while they’re streets that haven’t been hit even one time yet.”
Near Main & Adams Streets folks are just trying to chip away at the snow on their block.
Susan Mccarthy suggests has a suggestion “I’m hoping they’ll bring a truck in & just remove snow, that would be smart.”
Over on Belmont Place, Dalia Perez says neighbors are concerned about their safety. ”It’s dangerous. For the cars & the people that live here. Because they’re trying to get their cars in & it’s a hassle. & there’s really nothing we could do you know? We have to shovel ourselves out sometimes.”
3-1-1 says they’ve been busy all day fielding those plow requests to the DPW. Donna carney, 3-1-1 director says “We have not seen anything like this. But as the mayor quoted, be patient. We are aware, we’re documenting.”
Not usually open on a Sunday, Carney says the storm’s magnitude forced operators at the city’s 3-1-1 call center back into the office.
She says they took over 800 requests by the time they closed at 5.
