Alderman Ashanti Hamilton has announced that the 1st Aldermanic District will be part of a city-sponsored pilot program for snow plowing this winter within specific alley sections. The Department of Public Works’ trial program will provide city officials with valuable information to determine the feasibility and cost of plowing alleys citywide.

Under the pilot, snow plows will clear snow after a minimum accumulation of three inches. The selected alley sections are within the boundaries of W. Olive and W. Capitol Dr. between N. 13th and N. 17th Streets, and W. Sheridan Ave. and W. Silver Spring Dr. between N. 35th and N. 42nd Streets.

Alderman Hamilton is happy that the 1st District has been selected for the pilot program: “This program will greatly reduce the burden of clearing snow for residents, and we are hoping that the pilot will be successful. Thanks to the Department of Public Works for selecting our district for this unique opportunity.”

DPW will assess if additional pilot demonstration areas are necessary after the 2015-2016 snow season.
