SNOWBANKS RUBBING SOME THE WRONG WAY

Vision (Canada) - - Actualités - News -

Some re­si­dents are ea­ger to see the sides of Ro­ck­land’s Lau­rier Street clear of snow. The snowbanks have made it dif­fi­cult for some to reach the si­de­walk when lea­ving their par­ked car. “They take weeks to re­move them eve­ry win­ter,” said Hé­lène Poulin on Fa­ce­book. “It’s even dan­ge­rous to drive when one of the double lanes are too nar­row on Lau­rier.” Ano­ther re­sident stres­sed that she has a hard time get­ting off the bus af­ter being drop­ped off be­cause of the height of the snow banks. When as­ked about the mat­ter, Ju­lie Char­trand, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Of­fi­cer for the Ci­ty of Cla­rence-Ro­ck­land, stres­sed that the re­mo­val of such snowbanks is done spo­ra­di­cal­ly. She did men­tion, ho­we­ver, that she would dis­cuss the mat­ter with the ma­na­gers res­pon­sible for snow clea­rance.
