I understand that homeowners dump their leaves on the street which is lazy and blowing the snow from their driveway on the street is lazy, but what are some business owners suppossed to do downtown, bag it? Seriously, pushing the snow on Broadway makes that big a difference the city cant handle it? A few extra trips to the airport to dump it is to much to ask? The gas adds up? Maybe, but so does all the extra driving around city workers do for their personal reasons with city vehicles. Who pays for that? The people who your telling not to push a few shovels of snow on Broadway. What do people pay taxes for? The city got their own column bragging about how much snow they haul away each year and a week later they make it sound like they are overwelmed and need to start charging you for it. What’s next, make sure when you mow your lawn that no clippings accidently make it onto the street? What makes it all funny is I drove around today and everyone was pushing their snow out on the street and on Broadway.

I’ve also wondered- on places like Broadway/etc. where people wanna cross the street on the corners ….a lot of the time it seems as though there is a lot of snow or ice left on those for people to step over or walk through. I know that this may not be a big deal for some people, but for those that have a disability or are elderly, it’s tough. It also creates a hazzard in general if it gets compact and slick. Shouldn’t the city make sure those crossing corners are clear? Also, sometimes just by the snow plows going through, they clog up what has already been shoveled out anyway.
