They didn’t plow or sand last storm until it was melting and I haven’t seen them today.

I thought we paid taxes for those services.

Oh wait we have a budget deficit thanks to Ron (I can’t count) Sims.

The cars with bad tires and no four wheel drive do us all a favor and stay off the friggin road.

You think they sleep at the county maintenance shop?


Did anyone call and wake them up?

The very question many residents have been asking all week.

Doesn’t anyone in the Public Works Department know anything about plowing and sanding? They plowed my street Sunday and didn’t put any sand down- instant skating rink!

After days of phone calls from my neighbors and I they came by Wednesday afternoon and sanded. Great timing as it’s all under 5 inches of snow now!

I saw a sand truck on First Avenue this afternoon but not any on 148th or 152nd.

The best part was sitting in the 909 having coffee and watching a guy put chains on his rear tires. Hops in the car and whooops- front wheel drive.

He must work for the city!
