During his door-to-door sales route on McCarragher Street, Mitchell Owens told Newswatch 16 that some of streets he walked along are still a mess, but he defended city workers.
"I used to be bias toward city removal, but they`re doing a good job,” said Owens. “It’s hard, we`re getting hit with storms twice a week, it seems like.”
Mayor Tom Leighton told Newswatch 16 that the city has plenty of salt supplies left, but he asked residents to clear their sidewalks and stay patient.
"I`m sure there`s some people that are not happy with the way that the roads are. Again, we got 10 inches of snow in the city of Wilkes-Barre, on top of picking up a double pickup of recycling and garbage in a certain section of the city,” explained Leighton.
Acting Fire Captain Jeff Berlew spent a part of the day with fellow firefighters, shoveling out hydrants that were buried or surrounded by snow on narrow side streets.
"Even when there`s no snow on the ground, we run into issues like that, but it makes it makes it quite more difficult with the snow on the ground.”
