snow job  ( December 9, 2017)
Not too bad a response by city crews that was a lot of snow. One question, with the recent dump of snow why can't residents of Second Street south park in their yards at back, most of the north side have lane access as well as a good portion of the south side residents really makes the road narrow. Maybe we need to look at the bylaws?

i really do not believe that the operators are trained to plow snow properly they did the road in front of my place and took a good portion of of yards away which we will have to pay for to fix. They do not plow the roads down to the pavement. They also worry about downtown. Well if i can't get out of my yard I guess I don't go downtown.

Look at the streets and they are not plowed. The blades need to be put down. Why don't they use a truck that plows and sands at the same time instead of graders? This would save a lot of time and money less workers they keep saying they have a shortage of.

My biggest complaint is the windrows left by the graders that impede traffic flow from side streets.
An example - Drewry Drive was not plowed until 4 a.m. on Wednesday. During the previous days, Valley Drive was plowed by the grader. Each time leaving a windrow across Drewry. If you didn't get stuck on Drewry, you did when you had to break across the windrow.
Another complaint is why is ByLaw Enforcement is not going after residents who are depositing snow on roads and city property. Every guy with a quad seems to feel it is okay to plow snow onto or across the roads!

Snow removal should be brought into the mix. Regarding 2nd street not being able to park on the street but to park in the back lane is ridiculous! Are you referring to the unploughed non existing back lanes on the south side of the street? Have you noticed there is no place for any snow anywhere in Town to be left? I say the snow should be removed.

Always nice to see snow pushed on roadway from driveways making it harder for snow clearing and the parking on the streets makes it worse.

Good job, that was a big storm with high winds. People parking on the streets that have laneway access and driveways on Streets like Second Street North shouldn't be allowed to park there in the winter - they clear the snow and pile it up and reduce the traffic to one lane. This is a bad hill.

I think with the quantity in such a short time they have done a very good job. The sidewalks seem to be a bit neglected but I'm sure that will come.

I think the nay-sayers had best ask themselves if they were able to do better in their own driveways during this storm. Remember, it was a record breaking event. I do see some times the city could do better. Considering the obstacles they have to deal with in snow clearing, the routes they have to prioritize, and the manpower/equipment requirements to hit it all at once during such an event, unless you all want to pay more for that service, suck it up. Expect this to happen on occasion where we live.

It is getting there, but waited too long to get started!
