Officials seeks snow-removal improvement


Quincy officials say they are changing some aspects of their snow-removal procedures to better handle severe cases. After the February blizzard dumped 30 inches of snow on the city, crews struggled to clear all roads. At the City Council meeting last Monday, Department of Public Works Commissioner Daniel Raymondi said his department can do better and has already talked to a contractor about manpower and equipment. In addition to contracting for more equipment for bigger storms, Raymondi said, supervisors will be out overseeing operations rather than plowing themselves. During the blizzard, the lack of supervision meant several smaller public ways went unplowed. Raymondi also said the city spent $1.4 million on snow removal for that storm alone.
