City crews have been plowing residential streets since last Wednesday. They were pulled from that effort to plow primary and secondary routes when it snowed again Thursday. They returned to residential streets Friday afternoon through Saturday night, and are back at it again today. Crews have made at least one pass on over 99% of the City’s residential streets. The challenge, and why residents are saying that they haven’t seen any work done, is the deep snow pack on the roads. The plows can only take off the top layer of slushy, fluffy snow – leaving behind the harder, packed snow. It will take two to three passes to clear all of the snow. City crews remain out in all districts around the city continuing to work on clearing residential roads.
