Snow clearing #fail

It boggles my mind as to how inept Hoboken is at clearing snow from the streets and crosswalks.

If you get updates from the City via e-mail or text you will have seen an alert sent out Sunday February 9, 2014, at about 10:14 a.m. advising residents that starting February 10, parking enforcement will be back on and plows — instead of the street sweeper — will be used to clear parking lanes.

Then at about 2:22 p.m. another alert comes out stating that because of ice, parking enforcement is suspended because trying to plow the ice may damage the equipment.  Allegedly a back hoe will be used to clear empty spots of snow in the meantime.

That’s what you get for waiting a week to clear snow. Any normal town or city with predominantly on-street parking would have cleared the snow within 48 hours.

Embarrassed that we supported Dawn Zimmer for re-election.  She should know that clearing the streets and crosswalks of snow (and now ice) is more important to City residents than her silly diary.

    No need to be embarrassed you can make up for voting for her by helping to recall her.
