The issue of plowing private ways cropped up during the Blizzard of 2013, and now the Town Council will tackle it.
The Blizzard of 2013 dumped more than 2 feet of snow on Watertown's streets, but some residents said their street were not made as high a priority as others. Residents of private ways in town complained that the snow was not removed as promptly as past storms. The Town Council will now explore the town's snow plowing policy when it comes to private roadways. The town does not have to repave these roads, but they have removed snow so that ambulances, fire and police vehicles can get to homes on these streets during an emergency. What do you think? Should the town be plowing snow off private streets? Should they get as high priority as other roads in town? Share in the comment section below.
