Sullivan's Reelection Campaign Starts With Snow Plows
We've had four or five snow falls in rapid succession since the end of October and I have never seen the snow plows out on our street as often and as quickly as these last two weeks. Is this just good government or does this have something to do with Municipal elections coming up next April? Summer street sweeping has also been much faster than in previous years. While I disagree with our mayor on most important issues, I have to give him credit for clearing the streets quickly after it snows.
Here's a map as of 7:33am this morning of what's been cleared. The Muni has Plan A and Plan B for clearing snow. The city neighborhoods are divided into three different groups. In Plan A, Group 1 gets plowed on Day 1, 2 on Day 2, and 3 on Day 3. In Plan B it is reversed. In the past, the website didn't tell you which plan was currently in effect. Now it does. They even have a map posted for clearing sidewalks and trails now! It shows which are Muni routes and which State DOT routes.
Now, if there is a break in the snow for a week or more, maybe they'll come can clear out the snow berms that are growing.
