  1. Maria, they came up and down my section at least 10 times and dumped four-foot-high mounds of snow in front of my house and driveway. I was forced to hire an outside contractor to remove what the plows left in front of my house. That was the best $100 I ever spent. It took this guy over 40 minutes to remove the snow left by the plows. To the city, please no longer plow in front of my house. Your drivers are inexperienced and have no idea what they are doing. The plows that came by last night were pissed because I put my cars in the street. Too Bad.
