Tag Archives: Calling up the Dept. of Public Works during Wintertime

As I had mentioned in some of my previous blogs, there’s a lot of snow and ice around during the winter. Whether you’re a driver or a pedestrian, it is very important to travel around roads and sidewalks free or at least cleared of a substantial amount of snow and/or ice or else, it’ll put a cramp on your usual travels.

I had  recently contacted the Dept. of Public Works in my city to report areas where extra ploughing and salting were needed considerably.

Mind you, DPW  does appreciate your feedback as a citizen/taxpayer. It’s not humanly possible for them to know every nook and cranny in the city that needs ploughing and/or salting. Our taxes are put to good use when they provide such service so as to make winter living here as comfortable as possible for us.

Take note of this as a PSA(public service announcement).
