Public Hearing for Snow Task Force

Several days after the February 5-6th snowstorm dumped more than 20 inches of snow on the Pittsburgh area, City Council created a task force to examine the delayed response in plowing many city neighborhoods.
Now Councilwoman Natalia Rudiak has announced the launch of a new website and a public hearing for the Task Force on Emergency Operations and Snow Preparedness. Rudiak says the hearing will be April 5th at 10 a.m. in council chambers.....“There are so many people who have come forward with useful and helpful information regarding the City’s snow emergency operations. We wanted to make sure that all of these people had a chance to speak on the record and contribute to the final report.”
Rudiak says for those who cannot attend the public hearing, a new website has been created where people can submit comments that will be entered into the public record at the hearing.

In addition, Rudiak said there would be a post agenda meeting in Council the last week of April to discuss preliminary findings of the snow task force with other experts. The final report is expected to be released on May 3.
