Where are the Snowplows the side streets in Charlestown are not passable. no emergency vehicles will be able to get down many of the streets. Call City and ask what's going on, where are are snow plows!

We also have many streets not plowed here in roxbury on Fort Hill. What i am seeing is lots of plows just driving up and down streets that are already plowed, shoveling tiny amounts if any at all. I am guessing they are just logging miles to bill the city! Come on, lets get on the other streets that need it and have not seen a single plow. As of 11 pm. Linwood, Highland street and Ave and centre place have not been touched as well as most of the streets on Fort Hill. Fort Hill Residents, please post here so we can get some action. I am guessing all Beacon Hill, back bay and south end you can eat off the streets at this point...

It's the same here in Charlestown. It seems the plows have been working day and night on the main roads through our area, but no attempts have been made to get at any of the streets leading to main roads. It's still only Sunday, but you would think we'd be hearing or seeing plows starting to make their way so that people can make it out for Monday.
Just a person! February 10, 2013 at 01:34 PM
Can you tell me why the plows are riding up an down Rutherford Ave with the blades up? Just a question. The Ave has been clean since Sat. Why don't they concentrate on some of the side streets! I agree with Bostons Best, are they just logging miles to kill the budget? Where is Mike Beaudet when you need him? Another item for Ridiculous.com!

I wish the GPS systems these plows need to have would plot their routes if all they are doing is going back n' forth over cleaned roads so they can show they are moving to get paid.

We have a bucket loader up here around the monument now trying to clean the side streets but he has no where to pile the stuff! What's needed here is dump trucks to haul it away or a melter to then send the water down the drain some where.

Tracking system still down, larger plows going back and forth on Main Street with plows up. Side streets are all blocked. Only way anyone with a medical emergency is getting off my street is like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33qyoSFPf_g

I called City Hall three times! Also made a request online. It can't be plowed. It needs a front loader to take the snow away. Bet it doesn't happen until tomorrow. I found it amusing that at noon, they cleared the Training Field but the streets are still not taken care of. Are the parks more important???

Bette: I think that the head honcho that runs DPW lives on Adams Street...his dog gotta pee somewhere!
Bette Task February 10, 2013 at 10:22 PM
Wrong. She lives on Cordis Street. The DPW didn't plow the Training Field. The Parks Department did.
Billy Ford February 10, 2013 at 10:53 PM
Betcha Cordis Street is clean as a whistle...
Bette Task February 10, 2013 at 11:32 PM
Not really. Not any better than the other surrounding streets. Chestnut Street still not plowed!!
Melissa February 11, 2013 at 01:23 AM
Cook Street is still untouched! Anyone have any idea where the plows were headed??
