#2.  Re:  DSNY Snow Removal on West 12th Road

Privately contracted snow plows were present on West 12th Road ....

* at 7:20 pm Tuesday Jan. 22nd
* at 10:40 pm Tuesday Jan. 22nd
* at 5:50 am Wednesday Jan. 23rd

A DSNY salter/plow truck was present on West 12th Road...

* at 10:15 am Wednesday Jan 23rd


At 11:00 a.m. this morning West 12th Road, although icy, was open for traffic.

Coordination and effectiveness of assigned plow vehicles was markedly better than those we experienced during the January 2nd storm earlier this month.
