I only saw one plow all morning and day and my job persists of driving around Utica all day. It seems they never keep up with a storm and only wait til night time to plow. That tactic might work with your personal driveway but not with peoples life on the streets.

This philosophy has to stop. No other municipality does this. Who cares if cars are parked on the street. Plow around them so at least cars can travel safely during the day. Then at night clean them thoroughly. If Utica can't afford to pay a few plow drivers during a storm then we really are pathetic.

They plow at night on OT and go home during the day on the clock.

A simple parking rotation from November to April solves all the parking issues. Even side parking on even days and odd side on odd days. But no Utica waits till all the snow is packed down, and all the driveways are plowed.
