Just in time for summer temps: A snow survey

With temperatures in the mid 80s and sunny skies this week, the Community Assembly's Public Safety Committee has a few questions for you about -- what else? -- snow.

Actually, it has 27 questions for you.

It's the assembly's official Snow Survey for 2011, asking what you thought of the city's snow removal policies for last winter. And no, the first question is not, do you remember if the city had a snow removal policy, or even snow, last winter?

But it does ask whether you understood your responsibilities under the Snow Removal Plan. ("I'll have my attorney review them and get back to you" is not an option provided.))

Or whether cars that are improperly parked during snow emergencies should be towed or their owners fined. ("The cars should be incinerated and the owners shot" are options that could have been included.)

Or whether you would like the city to stop leaving a snow berm in your driveway. ("Yes, please leave a berm on which I can build a chair lift and practice my downhill techniques" would have been a good choice to list.

If you've been dying to tell the city what you think of its snow removal operations ever since those first flakes fell, here's your chance. The survey can be found here.
