Bronx residents speak out at hearing over Dec. 26 blizzard

THE BRONX - Residents from all over the Bronx came to Hostos Community College tonight to voice their opinions about how the city handled the response to the Dec. 26 blizzard.

Many spoke about how their streets were not plowed for days after the snow stopped, leaving them stuck inside.

One resident talked about how the city has still not cleared the sidewalks around Pugley Park, nearly a month after the storm hit.

The council will compile the testimonies from the meeting and from others across the city into a list of recommendations for the city to better prepare for the next major snowstorm.
