actually

Provincial road stops at 1st then it becomes city responsibility. The roads are still crap. Drive Mc Tavish between 18th and 26th especially during busy school times. Many accidents could happen there if people didn't take care.  
 
The major problem is management. They do not coordinate the workers in an effective manner, follow that with the city perception about equipment. They at one time had a few graders( now down to 2)and they did have trucks with plows on them.The city has since grown. Got rid of it all as the snowfall amounts did not merit keeping them. Backwards thinking in my opinion, this is Manitoba after all!

Kudos!

Shout out to the City and the guys. I called at 10:30 this morning about the ice buildup on the city sidewalk in front of my house. I kept it clear all winter but with the large snow piles when it all started melting it flooded my sidewalk and driveway then froze. Its a real skating rink. Anyway, they are outside right now scraping and hauling. I expected that they would come, but no idea it would be so quick!!  
 
Thank you, I appreciate it.

XOXOXO

city workers

They are the same crew that fix potholes to I think. Definetely hard workers who do not get appreciated much. Working in very cold or hot weather all the time. There is a lot of roads to cover and they mostly get complainers. The city does not cause the ice and potholes. They just have to fix them.
