What is going on with this town? I was there friday afternoon til yesterday noon time when I got the hell out! Thank God for four wheel drive because WWW hasn't dont a damn thing about the roads yet and it's 10:00 AM Monday morning and it stopped snowing Saturday night. Reports from friends still in WWW is; the roads are still not plowed with the exception of Glenwood ave. Glenwood is a county road, that's why it's plowed. No other roads are being done by WWW. I certainly can understand the power outage due to the numerous downed wires and broken telephone poles, I saw it first hand, BUT! The electric company told me they will not even attempt to restore power in WWW until the roads are cleared. So if you live in WWW good luck with frozen pipes. I am being told that almost all the WWW public works department trucks are in disrepair and are unable to clear the snow. Funny thing is I managed to get my truck out to Rio Grand earlyunday morning to get Kerosene. As soon as I crossed the bridge into Wildwood the roads were plowed, Packed down snow but clear and drivable, Same thing for North Wildwood. I'm certain those towns were out all night clearing roads. Not WWW. WTF???

Walt, I was down yesterday and could not get to my home on Mueller Ave. Glenwood is the omly plowed street and down by D Ave. poles and wires are down. Thre ex-mayor was actually plowing with private equipment over by me but no other WW employees could be found except for the 2 onmarked police riding up and down Glenwood. My water is off but the heat and fridge were on. It is not good, it reminded me of a war zone. God luck

Will anyone down there Call your Public Officials on this “Mess”. They’re too busy stuffing their pockets during the summer months then leave you guys on your own in the winter. Get together and go to a meeting or two and raise some hell. At least post the names and positions of those folks who are responsible for Road management.

The roads in NWW, WW, and the crest were all passable on sunday. Not so in WestWW... I heard today that the county had to be called into WestWW to clear the roads since WestWWs equipment is not in running condition. I'm told there will be a piece about this tonight on channel 10 and news center 40.

What happened:huh:

There is still some areas in OC as of last night without power. I work for the PW in OC and can say 99% of our roads were cleared and passable in 2 days. Our trucks are in bad shape but they hung in there. We are all wore out from alot of hrs due to lack of man power. Call it BUDGET CUTS.
