GoLocalProv reached out to the 15 members of the Providence City Council to see how they thought the snow plowing and removal went in their wards. Asked to give a letter grade, see what they had to say below:
Council President, Ward 10
Comment: Aponte said that constituant complaints were mostly about the narrowing of the streets, and the narrow passageways for both pedestrians and vehicles. At some point, he says, it's not about the plowing, but how to remove the snow altogether.
Grade: None Given
Comment: "The issues with snow removal in my Ward were consistent with issues across the City. I feel grading the effort is not a productive exercise. I choose instead to commit to working with my fellow Council members and the Mayor to study the operation in an open and transparent forum to find solutions. While the around-the-clock effort put forth by the city workers during the blizzard, along with the response to numerous calls for assistance was commendable, the end result is our citizens are generally not happy and we need to do better."
