2014 A new plow- plows clean?
Mayor Sheehan and City DGS are
making headway with improved
Observed, today, the Mayor and City
DGS at work clearing away dirty, heavy
salt laden snow-sludge from curb parking
lanes , New Scotland Ave, between
Krum Kill and Buckingham Dr.
No need to do this after future snow
storms if the City DGS begins to plow
New Scotland Ave, in successive, tandem
plow sweeps, outbound and inbound, as
soon as snow begins to accumulate.
Mayor Whalen did this very well, using
graders- which I am told the City
no longer owns?
No problem, 2 or 3 truck plows, operating
in tandem, at low speed will do.
Ideally, 2 big truck plows and a smaller
pick up truck plow - can keep the Avenue
clean, while not allowing snow to accumulate
in the curb parking lanes, then having a
speeding plow roaring along curb parking
lanes ,sending a tsunami wave of heavy
snow-salt-sludge over curb islands, trees
shoveled walks and blocking shoveled driveways.
This will improve traffic/pedestrian safety
on New Scotland Avenue, a major commuter
route, while improving residential quality
of life for the largely elderly homeowners
living along the Avenue.
