March 19, 1940: Town, city supervisors clash over snow removal

The question of which layer of government is responsible for snow removal on certain roads was as a hot topic 75 years ago as it is today.

A picture from the Picture Page, below the article, illustrates the condition of the roads at the time.

"Supervisors relieve towns of snow costs"

"Town and city supervisors clashed in a fiery debate this afternoon when the board voted 30 to 18 to relieve the town highway departments of removing snow on 178 miles of county roads."
