The Utica side streets are still an icy mess from the other night! Now, we have a lake effect snow watch on. Are our boys ready? Or, are these clowns of the plow gonna be sobering up after New Years Eve partying? Or, are the clowns of the plows taking the day/night off? C'mon, guys........we, the city taxpayers, pay your salaries!!!

I don't give a chit. If I feel like sleeping in the plow 'til my shift is over, I'll do it.

You can bet on the fact that Utica's DPW has done absolutely nothing to prepare themselves or their equipment for another snowstorm. They are so mismanaged that if you took the labeling off their equipment, you would think that they are located in a city that seldom recieves snowfall!

Didn't someone mention that the DPW's leader has been quoted as saying that the public should just "deal with it" when road conditions are poor? If I still lived in that godforsaken city I would be livid!

They are pathetic, I agree. I had one flip me off last year. I was out clearing my driveway and about halfway through the plow went by piling more at the end. The guy in the passenger seat flipped me off. I didn't even do anything. I was less concerned about that and more concerned as to why they need 2 in the vehicle.

He gave you the finger because they were jealous that your can clear a roadway of snow and ice with your shovel faster than the DPW can with their equipment.

DPW like Palmieri suxs. Warning for northern oneida county, not utica. 15+ inches, we may get a couple but our DPW cant handle that either.

My Utica street is still icy as well......ridiculous and a significant potential hazard and safety concern....drive through Marcy streets and they are totally clean. Someone is completely mismanaging this in Utica.
