Residents Ask For Better Snow Removal On Ash St.

Goldsboro is hopeful a major thoroughfare will get more attention the next time it snows.

City Manager Scott Stevens told the Goldsboro City Council this week that he’s heard many citizen complaints regarding the condition of Ash Street following last week’s snowstorm.

Stevens says Ash Street falls under the N.C. Department of Transportation’s jurisdiction, and the D.O.T. has increased is snow-clearing workload.

Stevens says the city plans to do a better job clearing Ash Street in the future, possibly seeking a reimbursement from the state if the city ends up clearing that roadway.

The city manager also thanks all the crews that worked on clearing the roads following the winter storm as well at the city workers fixing the broken water lines in the recent cold spell.

    What storm? Oh you mean that little three inch flurry? How silly!! Ok I am originally from Marquette Michigan where 3 inches of snow is a daily occurrence if that little. We grew up in the snow, its is on the ground 6 months out of the year, we learned to drive in the snow, all the city needs is more than a few snow plows and a crew that knows how to use them. I find it funny that a snow plow would be out clearing 3 inches of snow. I also think people need to learn how to drive not only in the snow but how to drive period

    Too much of a capital expenditure, for too little snow.

    I went out on Ash on Friday afternoon and part of the stretch from Madison to the creek was really bad. Still lots of snow and ice piled up especially in the east bound lanes.
