( Edited - see below ) Incompetent Bloomberg Administration to resume Alternate Parking Tuesday

The City, who along with the corrupt Sanitation Unions, has screwed up the aftermath of last week's snowstorm to a fare-thee-well, is stating on 311 that Alternate Side Parking resumes this Tuesday.

Many parking spaces remain unavailable due to snow. The premature resumption of Alternate Parking will cause unnecessary traffic congestion and frustration tonight and tomorrow. They will make a bad situation worse.

I hate to say it, but it looks as though Bloomberg and his administration doesn't even care anymore

330pm - The City has decided to suspend Alternate Parking regulations for Tuesday as well. Well they could have made this announcement this morning, but better late than never

There will now be a federal investigation of the illegal union slowdown during and after the snowstorm ( NY Daily News )

Sanitation workers destroyed headstones at a Jewish cemetery in Brooklyn during a belated cleanup of Bay Parkway ( Sheepshead Bites )

Forget everything you said, Phantom. the real reason is a ticket blitz. The city needs $$$$$$$$$

The garbage trucks were driving back and forth down Bay Ridge Avenue all day yesterday with their plows down - yes, *plowing the dry asphalt*. Meanwhile, half the cars are still snowed in and the garbage is piling up.... It's almost comical.

I observed the exact same thing over the weekend. A lot of sanitation guys standing around smoking cigarettes too

There is a lot of " pretend working " and overtime grabbing going on.

A few days ago ( Thursday? ) I got sick of seeing the NW corner crosswalk at 68th and Fourth Avenue impassible, so I shoveled a path and cleared the catch basin myself.

Overnight, the union criminals of the Sanitation Dept shoved a huge pile of snow on the crosswalk,destroying the path and obstructing the catch basin.

The sabotage is continuing. I don't think that Bloomberg has the stones to confront the unions on this issue. The NY Times has still not reported on this issue that I can see. Only the Post.
