Moon Street Plowing

Moon Street was left partially unplowed after the most recent snow storm hit the North End

“Plow left a large mound of snow in the middle of Moon Street in the North End. Moon is a one way residential street from North Square to Fleet Street. Residential parking is allowed on the left hand side of the street. The large snow mound was left on the right hand side of the street which is the traffic travel side. When cars are legally parked on the left side, road traffic is not possible due to the snow mound. The mound should be moved as it poses a safety hazard if emergency vehicles had to pass. See photo looking up Moon St., (it was taken from the Fleet Street side).”
