Media Advisory: Cheh to Hold Hearing on District’s Plan to Tackle Snow Removal Ahead of 2017-2018 Winter Season

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Monday, October 16th, at 10:00 am, Councilmember Mary M. Cheh (D–Ward 3), Chair of the Committee on Transportation & the Environment, will hold a public hearing on D.C.’s snow readiness for the 2017-2018 winter season. Meteorologists with the Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang will report on this year’s winter weather projections and Department of Public Works (DPW) Director Christopher Shorter will present the District’s “Snow Removal Operations Plan.” The hearing is an opportunity for Councilmember Cheh to hear the anticipated costs and cleanup plan for this winter’s snowfall, discuss the lessons learned from previous the year’s preparedness, and see what can be done to keep residential and commercial sidewalks clear of snow and ice.

The District’s snow removal equipment will be on display outside of the Wilson Building ahead of the 10:00 am hearing.
