This applies to a street in Carrick, where residents say they are tired of being ignored by the city.

That street is Dellrose Street and people are angry that it still hasn’t been cleaned up, even after several calls to the city.

All it took was a call from KDKA to the Mayor’s Office to find out why the street was being ignored and within two hours a truck had arrived to sprinkle the road with salt.

“On a scale of 1-10, about 25, very uncomfortable,” says Kathy Gallagher, who has lived on Dellrose Street for 52 years and for 52 seasons, said Kathy Gallagher, who has lived on Dellrose Street for 52 years. crowded, she said the street was ignored by the city.

“I went to the grocery store yesterday and every road out of Brownsville was clear except ours,” she said.

Gallagher had to call 911 after her elderly mother, who lives with her, fell. She said the fire department couldn’t get to their home because of the snow and ice, so they were forced to park the truck and walk.

“If this is something that happens, they just pick her up and she’s fine but they can’t make it here, and I’m worried about that,” she said.

Today, Gallagher said she saw a tractor-trailer cross her street and plow the vehicle below her three times.

The neighborhood has ended its smarts.

Natalie Milanak said: “It’s not safe, it’s not safe, people can’t go out to work. “My roommate, she couldn’t even go out two days ago. So terrible.”

After talking to the neighborhood, we called the Mayor’s Office and City Council to find out what was going on.

Councilmember Theresa Kail-Smith spoke by phone, saying the council would discuss their concerns as early as Monday when they meet with the mayor’s leadership team.

“We will meet with them and we will certainly discuss the matter but I do know that councilor Coghill has worked very hard with the new administration and with the acting director of public works in progress. trying to get something to do with better snow removal,” she said.

Meanwhile, Kail-Smith said the administration had previously ordered $13 million worth of snow removal equipment, which was supposed to be delivered at this time but has yet to be delivered.

She said if people can stay this winter, next year they will be more prepared.

“Hopefully, next year the snow removal will have no reason to be bad in the city of Pittsburgh,” she said.
