Milford Public Works: 'Give Us 24 Hours'

A message from Milford Public Works asks for 24 hours after the end of the storm to finish their plowing and sanding operations.

 

If you dial, (203) 783-3265, you will hear an automated message from Milford Public Works:

"All snow plows and sanders are out on the roads. If you have a medical emergency, please dial 9-1-1 for assistance. Lastly, we ask that you give us 24 hours after the storm has ended to finish our plowing and sanding operations."

Thanks for your reply, Butch. Yes, I could have done a better job with this storm than the DPW - this stuff isn't rocket science, it's common sense. First of all, the DPW should have been plowing DURING the storm, not wait until after all 38" had fallen. Secondly, front-loaders are not for plowing - they are for managing piles, allowing the plows to deposit the plowed snow somewhere. The idea that a plow can't plow through this amount of snow is BS - I've seen little snowblowers get through it no problem. Third, there is no one at the helm in Milford managing all of this. My road was plowed late this afternoon and since then I've seen a front-loader go down the road 7 times (I've counted) with his plow IN THE AIR. Why isn't he helping the plows to do the roads that haven't been plowed yet? This is blatant mismanagement. I know that, you don't, so I guess it's pretty clear who the ignorant one is.

Milford was not predicted to receive 38" of snow. We were supposed to get about a foot.

Glad to hear that your street has been plowed, mine has not. You are so knowledgeable ! Maybe the Mayor and DPW should consult with you before the next storm.

I,too live on a cul de sac (tertiary rd?) No plowboys yet? Where r u? I have a college student who cannot leave for school & the rest of us cannot get to work! Everyone knew about the storm days in advance..did the DPW not hear the weather report? Milford was nowhere near prepared..why not?? We did our part..sidewalks cleared in a timely fashion. Its now after midnight monday am & not a plow, truck or even a man with a shovel in sight!!! come on guys show us ur stuff.
