After blizzard, Boston residents dreading more snow
ROXBURY, Mass. (WHDH) -- With another storm on the way, a lot of people in Massachusetts have cleanup concerns.
It took days for some streets to get plowed out and that has city leaders and neighborhood activists getting ready for another round of trouble.
The blizzard's two-plus feet of snow in the Bay State won't soon be forgotten -- and neither will the slow response of the plows on some public streets.
“[I’m hoping they’ll do a better job] absolutely,” said Marc Seiden, a concerned resident.
Citizens Connect is a Smartphone application where people can post complaints about unplowed roads and unshoveled sidewalks.
7News checked the app and found a large amount of complaints in Jamaica Plain.
Residents on Goldsmith Street still have to dodge big piles of snow nearly two weeks after the storm hit.
Audrey Jackson took still shots of her neighborhood, including one of a fire hydrant people shoveled out themselves.
“There would be plows driving down the streets with their plows up. It took at least a day and a half before a plow came through once,” Jackson said.
The mayor's office told us Boston’s DPW Commissioner Joanne Massaro would not be going on camera for an interview, but in a statement she said:
"We will conduct a thorough after-action review of the latest snow storm, as we do after every major event, to determine what worked best and what we can improve upon for the next storm."
The people who live on side streets in beleaguered neighborhoods like Jamaica Plain sure hope so.
