WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
After the heavy snows of 2013, the Segarra Administration, with much fanfare announced they had purchased a couple of the industrial type snowblowers pictured above. Where are the now? I have not seen any of them clearing Hartford's streets. Downtown and most major streets in Hartford are still a mess, narrowed to almost impassable widths. These snowthrowers should have been put into service immediately widening streets.
Have the snowthrowers disappeared? Have they been sold off like parking garages to pay the caviar bill for the Mayors Office?Or did we not maintain them and allow them to rust into the scrap heap? Can someone from DPW explain where they are or at least when they are being used so I can get a picture.
And what is the deal with the contractors hired by DPW using the CAT loaders with new York plates on Franklin Avenue when we aren't even using our own equipment.
