How Would You Rate The Plowing In Wakefield?

With the storm largely over, are you satisfied with the plow work?

Many local residents were treated to an extended New Year's weekend courtesy of this week's storm, which left more than a foot of snow in the area. 

One good thing about this storm was the light, dry snow, which generally makes for easier shoveling. However, at the town-wide level, there was still an awful lot of snow to get rid of out there. 

With that - How did the plows do in clearing out your neighborhood, or Wakefield's streets in general for this storm? Feel free to comment below!

Terrible. Over 3 ft from curbs on my st.no salt on hill slippery conditions.I know the dpw themselves are understaffed and they try.but the subcontractors are giving the town a bad name.they are terrible and could care less. How about hiring more town workers and getting rid of the subs.

Absolutely terrible. DPW should be embarrassed. I went from driving on bare pavement in Reading Friday evening to a thick layer of snow on the road immediately upon passing into Wakefield.

The town did a terrible job plowing for the last storm! It seemed like the plows didn't have their blades down all the way. There was a coating of snow on all the roads in Wakefield which made for slippery going. Wakefield should be embarrassed about the poor job they did plowing versus the other towns around us.

The town did a terrible job. I understand the challenges with the falling temps and the lack of effectiveness of treatments when temperatures drop. But didn't every surrounding town have the same issue? Yet their roads were bare pavement and their side streets looked better than our main roads. I was in Lynnfield, Stoneham & Reading. It was safe to drive once you left Wakefield.

No excuses for the lousy job of cleaning & plowing the roads this last storm. Plenty of advance warning that snow/freezing temps were coming. The roads weren't pre-treated. The only reason they got down to pavement is that the temps warmed up on Sat. Each and every town around us was able to keep up with the snow on Thurs & Fri & get their roads down to pavement. And clear their sidewalks. Wakefield was an embarrassment.
