From Fox 9, St. Paul Public Works Director Sean Kershaw apologized for an incomplete plow job on St. Paul streets this week, after residents had been asked to move cars to accommodate snow removal equipment. “The biggest reasons were weather and totally new routes. We had to pull 15% of our staff to address overnight snow on arterials, and sewer staff had to focus on opening storm drains from all the rain. We were using totally new routes, which slowed the start and took longer than we expected,” Kershaw tweeted.
