Mail Bag: Winter Storm

In response to my post about the storm earlier this week, an anonymous reader wrote in to say:
Yeah, sure Frank, like the shovels would even be used if the people did have them.
To which Rebecca responded in the comments section:
Well, I used my shovel AND snowblower, as did many of my neighbors. Only thing, the CITY didn't appear to use theirs. Warren between Rouge Park and Wayne State was atrocious. They said on the news they were prepared. I didn't see a plow/salt truck until I hit Woodward at Forrest.
I have to side with Rebecca on this one. The clear majority of sidewalks are shoveled throughout the Warrendale neighborhood and have been since the snow stopped falling.

As for the City of Detroit and the fact that the Department of Public Works, they are supposed to plow residential side streets when we get more than 6 inches of snow. They never did that.

I know for a fact that some folks from the Mayor's Office check this site from time to time. I'll leave it to them to respond to that one.
