Snow clearing questioned

I agree that the city's response was unacceptable to your request for information about snowplow clearing and that you should follow up with an FOI request. (Jan. 5 editorial).

In the meantime, the P.G. Citizen can figure out, fairly accurately, in nearly real time, where and when the streets of P.G. are being plowed. Just ask your own circulation department.

As a daily newspaper you are, unique among private companies, on every P.G. street at the same time of day five out of seve days a week. Ask the circulation department to report back to the news department which streets have and have not been plowed.

When you do get the FOI response, you can compare that response to anecdotes, phone calls and other evidence you've collected.

FYI, my street was plowed at 8 a.m. on Jan. 5 days, eight days after it started snowing.
