Notify NYC gives us the news that alternate side parking rules and parking meter requirements are suspended again tomorrow, Wednesday, December 29, “to facilitate snow removal.”
As to the removal of the white stuff in Community District 2 (which includes Brooklyn Heights), we’ve received the following:
DSNY anticipates receiving two more front loaders from Manhattan by noon. The additional equipment will join two front loaders, 30 standard plows, and a small number of V-plows already in operation [in CD 2].
With the additional equipment, DSNY expects to plow almost every street in the district at least once by this evening. Love Lane and College Place, the only “tertiary” streets in the district, will most likely be plowed overnight.
In addition to other duties, the front loaders will be used to remove snow around vehicles stuck in the streets, allowing the city and private contractors to tow those vehicles, focusing first on immobile ambulances. Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg has invited private equipment owners and operators to contact the city if they are available for snow removal and towing.
As announced yesterday, if you see a street that needs plowing or salt please report it to 311 or http://cot.ag/hZ49Gi.
