Annapolis And Snow Don’t Mix

Arundel Muckraker Doesn’t Discover Snow Plan

Last month,  Annapolis authorities were busy warning residents to get their cars off of “emergency snow routes”  and “emergency snow connector routes“, to prepare for the snow storm that blanketed the area a week before Christmas.

Little did the residents know that it was mostly lip service. Sure it makes sense to remove your cars to allow for the proper clearing of the roads. But it also seems that the City should have a plan as well.

Not so much. The Arundel Muckraker has discovered that there was no plan in place to clear the streets and much of it was left up to plow drivers and the number of residents who called to complain.

As we have said before, we are looking to give new Mayor Cohen the benefit of a doubt, but it seems that every time we do, something else pops up. The Arundel Muckraker interviewed Phill McGowan, the spokesperson for the City and it is painfully obvious that Annapolis is woefully unprepared for the next snow–but rest assured, there’s a task force on the case.
