WOODBINE — Snow is everywhere right now due to a recent snowfall, and Woodbine city workers clear the path and need many different places to take it as they clear streets.
And that is understandable, said several residents, but they expressed concern about it being pushed up into their lawns and the damage that is doing to them.
Jen Nelson, Gina Pauley, Shelli Pauley and Ralph Pauley came to the Woodbine City Council meeting January 27 to explain their frustrations to city officials and ask if they could work together to come to a resolution.
I have some concerns about the snow removal on C Street, said Nelson.
Snow is being pushed up in the front yard of our place, she continued. I don’t mind snow, I’m okay with snow coming off of 10th Street,
However, I have a real hard time why when, at the north end of the street there’s an open lot that belongs to the city, and is obviously just mowed, but why you drive on the wrong side of the street and bring the sand, rock, slush, salt and everything and push it up five, eight, ten feet up into my front yard, Nelson said.
