Who plows the streets?

We had 3 inches yesterday.  Our street was melting fast.  Why on earth did plow trucks come down the street to push existing mounds of snow and ice along our lawns????   I saw them go up and down a few times!  You morons dug up my lawn and pushed snow and ice in front of my driveway again!  You know how many darn times I cleared it???? Who can I complain to?  These look like private companies.

The Township contracts snow removal with independent contractors. If you have a problem with them, or snow removal done by Township employees, I would suggest you contact Len Moffa at the Department of Public Works. The number is: 856-228-3144. The contractor for my development is Marksman and, in my opinion, they've done a good job this winter. Good luck.

I agree the plowing job was horrible. They just rode up and down the street pushing more and more snow in front of my driveway. Also, staying about 2 feet from the sidewalks and mailboxes. Not very helpful.

i did c a lot of cars parked in the streets in front of homes.saw a lo i saw lots of cars parked in streets,surrounded by snow,yes very hard to get out of. so many of the homes had garages, and driveways, i don't know if every ones garage gets cluttered,and no room 4 a car, but lots of driveways and no cars parked on them. snow plows. dammed if u do, dammed if u don't.

It's always annoying to have them plow in the driveways especially after you just shoveled them. What they leave is usually a heavy condensed pile. The thing that bothers me is that I watched them plow my streets long after the snow was cleared. I felt it was racking up hours when they could have moved on. Better supervision is needed.

I agree with you Joan. I think plowing nothing makes them add up the hours which equals extra money!

I don't think they get paid hourly and not about extra hours and money. It may be different now, but I had friends who did this years ago and it was contractual. If it never snowed that season they still got paid to be on call and available, which happened some years, and then other years they worked their tails off for the money.

Here's a tip... Put a couple trash cans out in the street right before you're driveway and the plows have to go around it, and can't plow you in.

They blocked my driveway and then 2 trucks sat chatting about 3 houses away. They saw me clearing the snow. They waited til I cleared the driveway of almost 2 ft high compacted snow and slush, I put it out into the street. Then the truck plowed that. If he didn't plow from the start it would have been less shoveling for me.

And the worst part I came out of my garage to take my kid to school to find the snow piled high, so the morons in the trucks see I can't get out and do nothing, I removed the snow myself. Next time I am definitely putting trash cans on both sides of the driveway. Really poor work ethics among these workers.
