“I shovel my sidewalk and as soon as we finish PennDOT comes right down and puts 2 feet of snow back on my sidewalk. If we are not allowed to put it on the street why is Penn Dot allowed to put it on my sidewalk?“
If you don't shovel you sidewalk you get a fine from the City of Coatesville, but after Ms. al Amin shovels 2 feet of snow from her sidewalk PennDOT plows go by so fast that they plow the snow back on her sidewalk and she has to shovel all over again.
If she shovels her sidewalk and while she is away on a business trip PennDOT plows the icy snow from the highway back on the side walk Ms. al Amin has to pay a fine.
"I don't have a problem shoveling my property but I don't want to shovel the same 2 feet of snow 4 or 5 times”
Coatesville City Council Vice President Karl Marking:
"We would like Penn Dot to be a little more sensitive and go a little more slowly so that the snow is not pushed onto the sidewalks."
Listen to the exchange here. The order of speaking is Coatesville City Council President Ed Simpson, Ms. al Amin, Karl Marking and Coatesville Public Works Director, Don Wilkinson:
