Substandard snow removal

 

Every year the same thing: How can we live in a city of this size and have such substandard snow removal?

The residential streets, especially on the south end, are a nightmare to walk or drive on. They were never plowed due to the convoluted plowing methods of the city administration, and no sand or gravel has been applied to reduce the icy conditions. Where does the city think the 24 inches of snow to date has gone when it does not get plowed and does not melt?

It does not take a genius to figure out that the unplowed roads will become icy and dangerous. So, why is Spokane stuck with an inadequate snow removal system year after year? Aren’t there any forward-thinking leaders left that can make a difference at City Hall?
