More Bad Weather

The city has once again been put under heavy pressure by the inclement weather.

First it was the huge snowfall last week and now it is the snow and freezing rain making an incredible mess out of our roads and highways.

The city’s tab for plowing and sanding is rising higher by the hour and already represents an expense this winter of more than $60,000 – with much greater expenses expected to follow as there is plenty of January remaining and much more winter to follow.

The parking situation throughout the city is a near disaster with the crowded, densely populated city seeming to have less space than ever before.

Many, many automobiles still haven’t been shoveled out following the big storm last week and parking in general which is usually difficult has been pushed to the outer limits.

Finding an extra space on a crowded street in Everett these days is near to impossible.

Unless there is a thaw in the weather pattern – and presently there isn’t one coming – the driving and parking situation here will remain difficult to impossible.

Everyone needs to keep their wits about them.

Rage isn’t where to go – even if someone else took the space you shoveled out.

If you encounter a problem with a neighbor, call the police.

    Would Like to know why the EHA Does not clean the sidewalks around the houses on Gledhill street behind the high school. It is public housing and therefore should be clear. Seems to me if I have to clear in front of the place I own and not the tenants then why Does the EHA not do it

    I totally agree with you about the housing athority not shoveling sidewalks around the housing property.I am a long standing good tenent who clears the snow off the porch and stairs I share with neighbors and I,m the only neighbor that does that and assume that as tenents responsibility because for one safety reasons another reason housing only does it for elderly tenants in which i,m not.The three years I lived on Gledhill ave and did the sidewalks near my housing complex.however I got sick of making that my responsibility however I think of the poor people who walk in the street because of uncleared sidewalks.but not only EHA but citywide its a huge problem.call housing and complain.(617)387-6389.as a tenent i,m sick of housing not making it there responsibility.
