SNOWBANKS RUBBING SOME THE WRONG WAY
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.
