City Hallways (March 22): Some inside info from the city's snow plan

Talking snow as spring begins

I was just reading the city's 2016-17 snow removal procedures manual and thought City Hallways readers would be interested in the section called: "Residential Street Protocol."

Here's what it says: "Within 24 hours of a snow event, the goal of the Department of Public Works is to complete at least one snow plow pass on every residential street in the City of Buffalo. The first priority is to always keep primary (main) streets and evacuation routes clear. Because of this, snow accumulation on some residential streets may be greater than usual during severely heavy and/or continuous snowstorms."

And this section on the most dangerous snow area: "The most treacherous conditions during any snowstorms can be found in the area along Fuhrmann Boulevard. Technically we are not obligated to plow the Skyway entrances and exits that lead to Fuhrmann, however, we are always available to assist in helping to clear them.  Due to the drifting conditions in this area, additional plowing attention is paid here to maintain safe driving conditions. This area typically requires two salt spreaders with plows."

Cannoli alert

Jefferson Ave. beat

As I've said before, with the Brown Administration focusing on Jefferson Avenue development, I'm keeping track of any Jefferson Avenue applications I see.

From Tuesday's Common Council meeting: Lawmakers  approved a food store license for a Family Dollar store at 909 Jefferson Ave.
