Not a plow in sight

A great Jan. 4 Citizen editorial. Thanks to Neil Godbout for expressing our feelings - and I am pretty sure many other Prince George citizens' feelings - about our current snow removal. We live on Genevieve Crescent off 15th Avenue. Our road has not yet seen a snowplow since the last snowfall started a week ago Friday.

When speaking with the service centre at city hall, the very pleasant woman looked at our address and said "plowing on Orange Garbage Zone roads will be started Friday Jan. 4." We find this completely unacceptable.

What has happened to the promised Priority 3 road clearing within 72 hours? There has been no explanation from the city to explain why this change in the promised snow clearing has happened.

It is now 11 a.m. Friday and still not a snowplow in sight or even a glimpse of a plow in our area.
