Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line:Snow plows blocking the sidewalk and blocked the handicapped spot access

Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,

Handicap parking snow removal should take priority over bike lanes. During the last storm the city piled the snow at the corner of Fairfax and North St blocking the sidewalk and blocked the handicapped spot access.

Our neighbor who’s house is in the background is essential employee nurse who takes care of her elderly handicapped father so she does not have time to remove the snow that the city piled there. Fortunately another neighbor is allowing them to use their space. On Friday she called the city and nothing has been done. Currently it is a pile of snow which has turned to ice where are the handicap spot is located as seen in this photo. We pay taxes to have our handicap spots on our streets accessible. This is unacceptable.
