How Did Your Street Look After the Storm?

photo(137)SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) –For the second time in less than a week, Western Mass. is digging themselves out of another snowstorm. Crews prepped ahead of the storm yesterday.

However, Frank R. simply thinks the Springfield could’ve done a better job plowing his street. “Every year. Every year it’s like this. It’s pretty crappy,” he said.

He ended up  is out shoveling himself a spot on Parkside Street, which made him late for work. “I think they did a terrible job. They came through like one time, and as you can see they left the snow still all over. When we park, our cars are out towards the middle of the street, so when we park, the mirror could get hit,” stated Frank.

There was a similar situation on Penacook Street. “Ithink they could’ve done a little better. I think they could’ve went down a little further so that when people are walking, they’re not walking in the tracks because it’s a little slippery,” Lori Suzor echoed.

All Frank and Lori wanted was another trip with a plow. Even though Wait Street might have looked bad, neighbors say it was actually the best job the city has done in the last few years.

DPW crews did note that they take care of the main roads first, then the side streets.

They say if your block isn’t up to par, you can let them know by calling 311.

Springfield Police are also reporting a number of snow blower complaints. Many folks are calling in over neighbors doing early morning snow blowing.

The city has noise ordinances in place. The use of snow blowers is allowed from 5 am until midnight on the day of a storm, or during a declared snow emergency.

There are no limits as to when plowing can be done.
