Six Foot High Pile of Plowed Snow Blocking Church Parking Lot


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — A local pastor says the city plowed in his parking lot so high that his parishioners can’t get to church.

This is the Gates of Heaven Church of God and Christ on Hayden Avenue.

Bishop Jerry Carr, Jr. says the street was plowed and a huge six foot wall of snow was piled into the entrance to the church parking lot making it inaccessible.

“I went down and I talked to them and they said they were going to send somebody here with the bucket loader to move it away which they never did. The bucket loader came through here but it never moved the snow,” says Bishop Carr.

The Bishop says the plows that usually clear his church parking lot are smaller trucks and with this amount of snow, they can’t get into the lot.

Meanwhile, Springfield DPW says it is looking into the complaint.
