All neighborhoods don't receive
By Lou Ann Richardson

Must be nice to live on Jackson Street during heavy snow fall
and have city crews come through hauling out massive amounts
of snow and clearing out driveways. I've heard there's at least
one city employee who lives on Jackson St., is that what it takes
to get the extra effort?
I live in the back of Bear Valley and spent in excess of 8 hours
shoveling through that weekend. The snow fall itself was plenty,
adding to that, and more difficult to manage was the city crews
coming back through plowing what then ultimately amounted to
wet, icy, heavy snow from the block before you, back in front
of the driveways. We too, were running out of places to put
shoveled snow. We still have a great deal of snow and ice and
I've not seen any city crews yet coming to help take some of
it out of the streets.
While I understand residents need to be responsible for their
driveways, finding out some neighborhoods get extra help from
city crews is frustrating. We all could have used, and could
still use the extra help.
