Local pol looks to better snow removal for seniors, disabled

Public Advocate Letitia James introduced legislation on Wednesday, March 11 that would require the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY) to establish a program to assist seniors and people with disabilities with snow removal.

“It is the responsibility of government to ensure the safety of all New Yorkers,” said James, stressing that, in addition, the bill would cut snow removal fines for the elderly and disabled in half.

“We must expand our resources – using existing networks of paid workers and volunteer services – to help clean up the snow,” she said. “This legislation is an important step in making our city safer and more livable for everyone.”
