Each year I go to city council and insist that can allocation be made to deal with the huge ski hill-like structure that exists in our snow dump. The huge winter storm we had last March added to the mountain.
May was not a particularly warm month, so our Public Works Department brought in the heavy equipment recently. Today we stopped operations with the mechanical shovel. The balance remaining is hard ice and will break the shovel if we continue. Ninety percent of the work has been done. Work on cleaning the area will be done over the summer. I have asked Public Works to carry out an inspection to ensure any water is draining properly.
