Large amounts of snow, heavy winter rain events, and above freezing temperatures are making alleys a slushy, muddy, early spring mess. The conditions may be around for a while as more heavy snow is in the forecast. Public Works will continue to remove snow while trying to avoid being overly aggressive and causing damage to the alley surface and snow removal equipment. Those dependent on alley access will be especially impacted by messy conditions. We ask for patience and understanding as we all do our best to endure our wild weather conditions and hope spring is truly just around the corner.
