Tipline: Clearing Snow Piles from Lancaster Village Sidewalks


Lancaster, NY - It may be hard to believe for people in the city and the northtowns, but there are still areas south and east of the city with plenty of snow piles from the "Snovember" lake effect storm. In fact a viewer in the village of Lancaster contacted us on Facebook to complain about the sidewalks in his development.

If you took a walk Tuesday morning along Robert Drive, Milton Drive, or Harvey Drive in the Village of Lancaster, then you ran into icy, dirty mounds of snow on the sidewalk left over from the Snovember storm. And the viewer named Steve contacted our tipline to say "I am asking you to inquire with the village of Lancaster on why they are not enforcing or assisting residents with sidewalk snow removal. The storm was over a month ago and I would like to once again use the sidewalks. It is ridiculous and unsafe that I have to walk my baby and dog in the street."
