Borough Mayor Addresses Road Clearing Concerns

first_imgPierce: “Don’t park your vehicle in the road, if you can, park them in your driveways and keep them out of the right-of-way. There have been a number of cases were vehicles were parked and caused the snow plow operators to have some issues, and it slows them down.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Charlie Pierce addressed the concerns from residents regarding the ‘lack’ of plowing on borough maintained roads during this winter season. He reminded residents if you were plowed first then you’ll be plowed last: “There is a desire to want it now, and maybe the failure to have the recognition that if you were plowed first last time then you are going to be plowed last the next time. They really try to balance that.” The RSA contractors also remind residents to do their part and yield to heavy equipment operators, and be mindful not to dump snow from personal property or driveways onto the roadways. All concerns regarding road maintenance should be directed to the RSA not the contractors. For more information call the RSA at 907-262-4427 or visit: https://www.kpb.us/rds-service-area/notices-rds The Road Service Area (RSA) contractors plow roughly 600+ miles of borough-maintained roads, according to Pierce. He also reminded residents to not park on the streets in the right-of-way of snow plows. According to Pierce this creates an obstruction hazard and sight problems for the traveling public and snow removal equipment.last_img
