Citizens of the City of Plattsburgh will be helping with snow removal as Nemo moves away.
While they are not required to shovel the sidewalks in front of their homes during the storm, they are given 24 hours after the storm to do so, Public Works Superintendent Arsene “Mike” Brodi said.
He said people need to take care not to overexert whil moving pushing snow, as back injuries and even heart attacks can result.
Town of Ellenburg Clerk Thelma LaBombard said she is careful not to lift too much snow, and that a friend clears her driveway for her.
Making snow removal more challenging on the streets of the City of Plattsburgh is vehicles parked on where they shouldn’t be.
“That’s why we put the snow (parking) ban in,” Public Works Superintendent Arsene “Mike” Brodi said. “We have to keep plowing.”
