Plowing crews went to work to begin clearing snow off Billings’ wider residential streets at 8 p.m. Tuesday, according to a news release from David Mumford, the city’s public works director.
Residential street plowing got underway on Tuesday in Billings.
Beginning Tuesday, snow plow drivers will — for the first time — be plowing residential streets in Billings.
The Billings City Council didn’t express any interest in having city crews begin plowing the city’s 323 miles of residential streets, which would cost at least $600,000 annually and require either private contracting or a large purchase of equipment and the hiring of an additional dozen employees.
With every snowstorm, Billings public works employees, sometimes with help from other city departments, must plow from Billings to Denver.
Interviews with city employees suspected of scavenging materials from the Billings Regional Landfill will not begin until the end of the week.
To put it simply, the McGuires' yard on Riverside Road is a mess.
