The Utica comedy never ends. I remember when you needed feet of snow to declare a snow emergency, now it is a couple of inches. That is because our dpw is useless and stupid.

The buildup for these little flurries is comical.

The city needs to sound like there saving our lives everyday to justify there 15%-20% tax increases every year. You know it will be part of the we have to keep our citizens safe and give them the services they exspect for there justification to raise your taxes again. It's the same ole same ole. Nothing ever changes in Utica which has become as predictable as changing my underwear everyday. You can almost re-write what they are going to say each year word for word.

They do it so they only have to plow once. The side roads are ignored will the emergency is in place to save on gas and overtime.

It's fun to live in a broke city.

Utica is a joke. New hartford streets were bare at 6 am. Utica streets are still covered. Use some salt DPW. And stop making stories up about not having any salt.

Westmoreland roads to the thruway were terrible. As was the thruway from westmoreland to utica, even the utica exit ramp was snow covered.

it makes it easier to plow and there is less chance of damaging a parked car which the city would be on the hook for. It is all about CYA:)

Well if the city would enforece an alternate parking situation from November to April the problem would be solved. Even side, even days and odd sides on odd days. This makes sure all cars get moved everyday, and the plowing would be done by now.

Cry cry cry its all you do. Get mad if they plow and salt get mad when they don't. Park your junk car in the street because your to stupid to rent a place with parking than it gets hit and you cry or the plow misses the street because your parked there and you cry.

New snow emergency for tonight. Why doesnt the City
just say whenever it snows, the cars need to be off the road. The "snow emergency" just gives Copeland and Shipman some "breaking news" to report on:)

it's the only way the streets get plowed!

no union issue its just safe for everyone when you dont have people parked in the street or driving around going to drug houses. Complain when they dont plow your street because your parked there or the raise the blades and miss your house and than complain when you have to pak your car on the lawn and they plow the whole street and it looks good.

They declare a snow emergency so their relatives in the DPW get the overtime. Not that hard to figure out.
