Clearing the Streets

With big snowstorms, I tend to get three types of constituent requests:

1) "I live on a small street and it hasn't been plowed."
Easy enough to handle...I call someone at DPS and it is done.  Sometimes it is done before I even make the call, which makes me look super awesome.

The next two types are two sides of a coin:

2) "The plows haven't plowed my street wide enough."  I will make a call to DPS and then two hours later someone on that same street will cal to complain:

3) "The plows keep pushing snow into my driveway and I have to keep re-shoveling."

Folks, please have some patience.  There is a lot of snow out there.  DPS crews have been working all night. 

Even though the Governor has lifted the ban on driving, Newburyport's street parking ban remains in effect.  By not parking on the street, you will be assisting the plow drivers in getting the streets cleaned up.

Feel free to notify me of any issues you may be having. or cell 978-518-0786
