They have no leadership.Last week with 2 inches they left ridges in the road.Remove the leadership as previous mayors did a better job.

14+ inches of snow and they've plowed my street twice already and I don't live on a main thoroughfare. Keep up the good work DPW.

of course he did a good job, he took over NINE MILLION of our emergency fund.. THAT WAS SAVED OVER 8 YEARS and spent it all. Thats what made it easy. Now the mayor has NO MONEY for the city to use. Roefaro was and is an idiot and that is why he did not run again, he knew how bad the situation was. MOney GONE, wasted, and pocketed by friends under the Roefaro admin. You have no clue...

Sorry dpw but Utica streets are pathetic. The main steets are pathetic. Go to NH, street are bare and drying out already. Genny to NH line was terrible, NH was dry. Utica plows leave several inches on roadways. Utica doesn't scrape, streets to bad to go to surface, a reason why Utica streets are bad. Only positive posts are from dpw workers.

The problem is Dave Short doesn't have a clue. He lets the day guys work overnight to rack up the overtime and then they leave when they have to plow for straight time. My street was done once at about 4am and they probably won't be back until 4am Friday when they can get more overtime.

NH streets are in great shape!! Town and Village got an early jump on things and worked throughout the night.

Can you imagine if the median was in the middle of downtown when there is a storm like this. There woud be such disoganiztio onf traffic. It wold be absurd.

This is probably a crazy question so go easy on me fellas. When cities or municipalities plow where does the snow go? There is no truck loader at the end of the road to scoop it up and carry it away.Is it all destined to be redistributed to the shoulders and onto our driveway aprons?

Finally someone else who gets it. Mayor was told this from the start.
Maybe he can share services with New Hartford to see how its done!
